Jesse James Farm

One of my favorite parts of our recent trip was our visit to the James Farm - James - Jesse James =) It was on the last day as we entered Missouri, right outside of Kansas City. Ever since I was ten years old and watched the movie "Jesse James" starring Tyrone Power and Henry Fonda I have been intrigued by the James lore, so I was delightfully surprised when everyone in the car said, "Let's go there!" So cool ... anyway, we got there about 15 minutes before closing time and our handsome young guide (who looked an awful lot like Jesse in his younger days) was kind enough to take us on a lengthy tour of the house, answered a lot of questions, and allowed me to take some photos (only of the outside of the James home and the land surrounding it). The interior of the house is interesting and also rather sad when you think about some of the things that happened there). Overall, it was a great experience - I got a lot of pics (which I will post shortly) and I was glad to see that out of respect to the James family descendents the farm is a quiet and peaceful place to visit and walk.
