I wasn't expecting much when we visited the 1859 Jail, but it was next to the Truman Home visitor center so we went in. An amazing woman named Frances greeted us and gave us an incredible history lesson. It was like she lived back then and knew Frank James personally. I think I learned more history of that time period than in all my school years. So the exhibits and letters and pictures were more interesting. I'm glad I didn't break the law back then after seeing the jail cells. Frances also told us how a local teacher brings her class to the old schoolhouse for lessons each year. What fun! I probably wouldn't have enjoyed the jail nearly as much if she hadn't been there.
