- Built in 1859, this historic frontier jail located in Independence Square is where Frank James, Jesse's bank-robbing brother, was imprisoned. With bars on the windows, the jail looks like something out of an old western movie. Visitors can tour the Marshall's home, the jail cells, a schoolhouse and the surrounding grounds. An exhibit of handmade weapons is also on display. Admission: $5 adults, $4.50 seniors, $2 children/students, children younger than 6 are free.
