Janssen Park

This is no ordinary community park! This brilliant 10 acre park is host to an 1851 log cabin rumored to have been used as a hideout by the notorious Jesse James, besides being used as a hospital, post office, and city hall during its lifetime. Surviving a devastating 1993 tornado, the cabin remains untouched by the progress surrounding it. The park also contains 2 spring fed ponds, 2 Mountain Howitzer Cannons, a bronze boy and girl fountain purchased in 1914 among other interesting artifacts. No wonder it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places! Janssen Park is a favorite among the locals and vacationers.
