Jesse James Home

St. Joseph, Missouri

The house where Jesse James was gunned down has been moved a number of times (and Jesse's remains don't get much rest either, far as we can tell). The structure was shunted over to the highway outside of town as a convenience to travelers, then made its way back into town in the 1970s. There it stands today, behind the Patee House Museum.

Museum director and local history expert Gary Chilcote gave us the nickel tour -- some choice bits excerpted here. The background music is taken from a merry player piano in the Pattee House Museum...[2:00]
