Saint Joseph Things to Do: 55 reviews and 76 photos


If you are interested in outlaws of the 'Old West', then the Jesse James home might interest you.

Jesse James was shot from behind by Bob Ford in this house on April 3, 1882. He was living with his family and the name of Tom Howard when he was killed. You can see the hole made by the bullet. The James Home is a museum dealing with the life and death of Jesse and includes artifacts from his grave when his body was exhumed for DNA tests. The test results showed a 99.7% certainty that the body was that of Jesse James. You will still find people who don't agree with this conclusion.
