Patee House Museum
This was one of the best known luxury hotels west of the Mississippi. Built in 1858 it once served as the headquarters for the Pony Express. Its biggest claim to fame is that Jesse James' family stayed here in 1882 during the investigation of his death. The hotel became a factory for several decades and then, after a long vacancy, started a new life as a museum in 1963. The building has been renovated to look the way it did in the late 1800s to early 1900s with furnishings and vintage appointments. Hours are Monday through Saturday 9 AM to 4 PM and Sunday from 12 to 4. General admission is $4.
