There are few historical figures with a more complicated life than Jesse James. History considers him an outlaw while many in Missouri still consider him a hero to this day. You can take a virtual walk through his real Kearney, Missouri farm to learn more about this controversial man.

Jesse James was born on this Kearney, Missouri farm on September 5, 1847. He married his first cousin, Zee Mimms and this farm would be their home. He and his brother Frank are believed to have pulled off the first daytime bank robbery in American history with the James-Younger Gang.

After Pinkerton detectives set fire to his home in 1875 killing his half-brother, Jesse James fury was even greater. Jesse's life was taken by the man many consider a coward, Robert Ford, on April 3, 1882. Jesse was shot in the back while straightening up a picture on the wall.
