On Saturday, October 24th, we stopped by Cafe on the Route in historic downtown Baxter Springs in Kansas. We both enjoyed delicious homemade blackberry pie with ice cream. The building was the former Baxter Bank which was known as the place that was robbed by Jesse James in 1876. However, historians disputed that such bank heist actually happened as the notorious robber was somewhere else. It is one of the legends that is a good story for the locals to tell visitors but no need to try to prove whether it is true or not because it does not matter. Do visit Cafe on the Route when you are in Baxter Springs, Kansas but don't try to find any money that might have been dropped by Jesse James as he tried to get out of Dodge on his horse!
