The Jesse James home is on Penn Street in St. Joseph, Missouri. It was here the famed outlaw lived for the last four months of his life. After years spent robbing in Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi, in the wake of the diastrous Northfield, Minnestota raid in 1876, Jesse James returned to the area he felt safest in. In December of 1881 he rented this house, which originally stood at 1318 Lafayette Street. On April 3, 1882, while cleaning a picture, James was shot in the back of the head and killed by gang member Robert Ford, who had just eaten breakfast with Jesse and his brother Charley Ford. The house was moved from its original location in 1939, then again, in 1977, to its current location on the grounds of the Patee House Museum. There is a marker at the original location on Lafayette Street.
