Curator's Choice Lecture Series: On the Trail of Jesse James

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Come down to the Farmington Museum to learn about the history of America’s Wild West from the curator, Jeffrey Richardson in the latest installments of the Curator’s Choice Lecture Series. In May see the presentation, "On the Trail of Jesse James." Learn about Jesse James, one of the most notorious outlaws of all time. But his string of successful robberies came to an abrupt end on September 7, 1876, when the James-Younger Gang attempted to rob the First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota. Repelled by local townspeople, Jesse and his brother Frank led an army of pursuers on one of the greatest chases in American history.
