“The site of the nation’s first successful daylight peacetime bank robbery”
It was a cold and snowy February afternoon when a group of horsemen rode into Liberty, Missouri. After a short time, gunshots broke the winter silence as the men rode off with their loot leaving one young college student dead and the town in shock. The Jesse James Bank, located on the historic square in Liberty, Missouri, was the site of the nation’s first successful daylight peacetime bank robbery. While the robbers were never caught, the crime as attributed to the infamous James Gang.
This was an ok visit. Seeing the interior bank was interested to me since I worked as a teller for many years. The building is well preserved and a good place to stretch your legs.
