  • Loved seeing where Frank James, Jesse James brother, was held. He was treated like a celebrity. An awesome part of history.

Beware, but be open to the spirits present. There's ba great deal of negative residual energy in the jail cells. The Marshall's quarters hold a special every, an specifically the nanny's quarters. You will see things.
  • This is a wonderful museum.
  • Its not that exciting
