Jesse James Is Coming to Pineville, MO!

In 1938, Hollywood descended on McDonald County, Missouri to film the movie Jesse James. It debuted in January, 1939 and since then, Pineville celebrates this momentous event every year with Jesse James Days. This year it is scheduled for August 6-9, 2014 and Tyrone Power, Jr is a special guest. He will attend a Meet & Greet on Friday, August 8 at 5 pm at the Pineville Community Center and sign autographs on Saturday at 5:30 pm at the Historic Courthouse on the Pineville square.

If you or a family member was an "extra" in the movie, join us on Friday evening as a special guest at the Meet & Greet occasion and sit on a panel of people to tell your story about Jesse James movie making.

Don't forget the grand old courthouse museum on the square! Shown below is the entrance to the Jesse James room. Funding for the room was provided in part by Leon & Carol Klein, McDonald County Historical Society members. The room represents the Dixie Belle Saloon that was in the movie. 

Below is a wall display in the JJ room ~

We look forward to you attending our grand event; there are many activities planned for the 4 days. 

Come see the Historic Courthouse at Pineville & get your history on!
