Looks like a new monument is in the making at the ambush site!

More weathered, graffiti on back, great place for a Christmas card photo!

Ambush site. Bonnie and Clyde Death Site

Well, this marker got knocked over, driven over, and repainted battleship gray. Make sure to visit the museum!

Ambush marker. 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.

Bonnie and Clyde ambush site. Bonnie & Clyde Monument

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.

This spot is just as rural as it was 80 years ago, during its brief bloodbath of fame.
