The Jesse James home site is on Lafayette Street in St. Jospeh, Missouri. This location was the original site of the house in which Jesse James was killed. The home was later moved from this spot and eventually made it's way to the Patee House Museum, a few blocks away, where it now stands. At the time of the home's location here it stood on a hill rising about fifty feet higher than street level today. After the removal of the home the hill was graded down to its present size. There is a marker on the street indicating the former home which stood here.
