The Jesse James Museum in Kearney, Missouri

by Kim Ritter

Now that our children are school age and old enough to understand, we've started adding historical stops to many of our family road trips. They are fun and interesting way for them to learn a little bit of our country's history hands on and to better understand some of the things they learn in books and in class. It's always nice when one of our journeys takes us near an interesting historical place that we can explore and recently we had the chance to stop in at the Jesse James Birthplace in Kearney, Missouri.
