"The actual bank the James - Younger Gang's attempted to rob on September 7, 1876. Lots of actual artifacts from the attempted robbery. The downtown area around the bank is also historical, with a lot of very nice shops to visit! This is a do not miss stop!!"
"Every time I visited our son at Carleton I'd head over to the Arb for a walk. It's peaceful. Beautiful. No matter which season. Spotted a few deer, lots of ducks, other birds and more than a few squirrels. Not to mention runners, other walkers and a few friendly dogs. There are several well-maintain..."ed trails. It's a lovely way to learn a bit more about the prairie and the plants and trees that grow there. And I always felt refreshed after my walk through The Arb. Our son loved his four years of running through The Arb and I certainly understand why!

"This museum has come a long way from when I was a girl. The museum itself is fascinating. It includes a carefully reconstructed bank teller's counter of faux wood grain, (back in the day, hiring an artist to paint pine to look like oak was cheaper than buying the oak!) and the original bank safe ..."so heroically guarded by Joseph Lee Heywood. There is a wonderful display of photographs and artifacts and a short video explaining the events leading up to the fateful day when Jesse James and his gang met their match with the citizens of Northfield. There is a wonderful gift shop with a most interesting selection of old-fashioned toys, books for all ages, t-shirts and more. Plan ahead and do your Christmas shopping here.
