What Visitors Are Saying about the Northfield Historical Society

Visited with teenagers. They enjoyed the variety of explanations including a video orientation. Well done! Great restoration and presentation of a time after the Civil War when times were still turbulent.
Richard J., Gainesville, Georgia

We really enjoyed seeing this museum. They kept the actual bank part of it as it was when Jesse James and friends tried to abscond with the money. The film was very informative and we left feeling that we well understood what took place.

Certainly worth the $5 admission…The young lady who walked us through the bank was a high school student who volunteers at the museum, She did a better job as a storyteller relating the events than many adults… Trip Advisior

Three of the four of us [on the tour] are James historians, with one of us a person who works at the James Farm and two of us are James writers. We found the tour to be accurate and well done by our tour guide.

The Historical Society was very well done. There was a $5.00 entry fee and it was worth it. We watched a film on Jesse James and read more about him. It also had a room describing Malt o Meal. It’s worth the stop.

This is not your typical “any town” Historical Society Museum… Annie T. - Yelp
