“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.
Expensive for what you get- would be worth it if it was free but as it is $6.50 would advise passing. One small room and not much to look at, plus Jessie James isn’t even confirmed to have been there.
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.
