“owned by the descendents of Frank and Jesse James”
Until 1978, the James farm was owned by the descendents of Frank and Jesse James. By then, the elements had just about claimed the farm. It was in ruins. Clay County purchased the home from Jesse's grandchildren and the restoration work was begun. By the next summer, visitors were once again going through the farm. Many visitors expressed an interest in how they could help with the restoration of the farm. As a direct response to these requests, an organization called "The Friends of the James Farm" was formed and its board of directors would like to invite you to become a member. As a "Friend" your annual membership dues will help finance the continued restoration of the farm as well as help sponsor historical research to help future generations know more about the lives and times of the James family.
We thoroughly enjoyed this stop. The walk was pretty and well maintained. The tour guide provided tons of information and insight to America's most famous bank robber.
It was a wonderful stop for the day. We saw a brief movie about his life then toured the farm and buildings. Very interesting
