  • Nice little museum chronicling the events of the day of the attempted robbery as well as the events that followed (capture, imprisonment, etc) Would highly recommend for anyone that has an interest...

  • We enjoyed this cute little museum, right in downtown Northfield. The bank display was very cool with the actual ledgers from the 1800s. We spent about a half hour here, not a huge place. We loved...

  • Great detalis provided by the written accounts and artifacts really made the chronological walk through an enjoyable experience. Had no idea the townsfolk battled the James - Younger Gang and firced them to leave with almost nothing. Worker there was extremely knowledgeable about the event and the town's history. Must see this place if you're in town!
  • Another great small town in Minnesota packed with history and cozy charm (sorry, I just wrote that like a travel agent or travel mag-corny but true). I was hoping they had daily reenactments of Jesse James Gang of 8 trying to rob the First Natl Bank in Sept 1870s as I wasn't clear from website but it turns out it is only performed on the Sept anniv. I toured the historical society downtown for $5 which houses the history of James Gang, the actual original bank inside, and also the Campbell's cereal company who made brands such as Malt 'O Meal and still does. There were also breweries nearby which we try in every town & city we visit so a good afternoon!
