This is where I am at now the birth city of Jesse James. I started to download the Uber app and was going to visit The James Farm, which has been restored by the Clay County department of historic sites. It is run as a museum and tourist attraction. It’s Sunday and it was only open for 4 hours today in the off season.
I wish I had visited the official site linked above, no need to take an Uber. Near the bottom of the page they have an open invitation to RV’s and bobtail trucks to come and visit. You must drop your trailer at a truck stop. The Pilot travel center on I-35 exit 26 is close and had several dropped trailers when I was there. Always ask at the fuel desk just to be safe and use a kingpin lock.
The reviews are a solid 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor so this is going on my list of stuff to see on layover. The admission is $8.00 for adults and kids under 8 are free.
If you like the old west and American History then this is a must see if you are in the Kansas City area.
