After a short time, gunshots broke the winter silence as the men rode off with their loot leaving one young college student dead and the town in shock.

While the robbers were never caught, the crime as attributed to the infamous James Gang. Visitors see bank as it was in 1866. Period furnishings fill the room and one become immersed in the story of the robbery as told by the bank teller. As you peer into the original green vault you can imagine the fear felt by the two bank tellers. Among the furnishings, a rare Seth Thomas clock, set for the exact time and date of the robbery, February 13, 1866. Many photographs and other documents are on display for the public to view. A museum store offers many historical books, period style toys and games, and other fun souvenir keepsakes.The Jesse James Bank Museum is operated by the Department of Clay County Parks, Recreation, Historic Sites and Tourism.It was a cold and snowy February afternoon when a group of horsemen rode into Liberty, Missouri.
