Gibsland, Louisiana: Bonnie and Clyde Death SiteWhere America's favorite outlaw lovebirds were riddled with dozens of bullets by hidden lawmen.
Visitor Tips and News About Bonnie and Clyde Death Site
During our road trip we thought it would be fun to see this monument. When you exit I-20 and head south, you pass thru a very small town where Bonnie and Clyde ate their last meal (which is now the museum). You will then make a right on a small street and head west a few miles. It seems like forever. The monument sits on the north side of the street and you can drive right up to it. If you are into gangster/mob Americana then it's well worth it. While driving on the small street I thought to myself "What are we doing this for?" But after you get there, and take a picture or two, you now have a great conversation topic that most people are interested in because of the history and story of Bonnie and Clyde.[Jliddi71, 11/11/2012]
This monument, in a very secluded area quite distant from any towns, identifies where the two famous outlaws were shot and in killed in an ambush by law officers, after a well-publicized career of mayhem and murder.[Gerald D Massey, 07/04/2012]
This spot is just as rural as it was 80 years ago, during its brief bloodbath of fame.
Keep driving about a mile and a half further than the map tells you to. The plaque will be on the right when heading south. Kinda cool to drive these back legendary roads![Riveras, 03/14/2010]
We've adjusted the map point further south on Hwy 54.
This monument, which is located 8 miles south of Gibsland on Hwy. 154, marks the spot where Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed. There is also a Bonnie and Clyde Museum in Gibsland run by the son of one of the lawmen who ambushed Bonnie and Clyde in 1934.[Joe Boulter, 05/01/2006]
