Near Adair, Iowa … 2.1 miles south of I80 Exit 75 on While Pole Road … is the site of the world’s first robbery of a moving train! By the Jesse James Gang … July 21, 1983.

Expecting to find $75,000 in gold the Gang only found $3,000 … the gold shipment had been delayed.

The Rock Island Railroad erected this wheel/plaque in 1954.
