Adair County



Jesse James and his notorious gang of outlaws staged the world's first robbery of a moving train the evening of July 21, 1873, a mile and a half west of Adair, Iowa. A locomotive wheel which bears a plaque with the inscription: "Site of the first train robbery in the west, committed by the notorious Jesse James and his gang of outlaws July 21, 1873" was erected by the Rock Island Railroad in 1954 - now part of the Jesse James Historical site, managed by the Adair County Conservation Board. The Adair CCB manages 8 parks, wildlife areas and historic sites totalling 853 acres!  For additional information about recreation areas and facilities of the Adair County Conservation Board - please visit them via the following connections:
