Friends of the James Farm and Museum [MO]

Until 1978, the James farm was owned by the descendents of Frank and Jesse James. Today, a museum has been added to the site, displaying Jesse James and James family artifacts including three of Jesse's guns; the boots he was wearing when he was killed; and the family Bible, with inscriptions written in Zerelda's own hand. The farm and house look much as they did when Zerelda was giving the tours and is fully furnished with items that belonged to the James and Samuel families.

The museum and farm offer exhibits, tours, and research library access.
