Clyde Barrow grave.

Clyde Barrow Gravesite

Clyde is buried next to his brother Marvin (aka. Buck Barrow) and to the left of their grave are his parents, Henry and Cumie Barrow. Their graves are on the left side of Western Heights Cemetery. The gates are usually chained, however there is a very wide opening and you can easily get through. Sometimes they open the gates on certain days of the week.

It's kind of in a bad part of Dallas so I definitely would not visit the cemetery at dark.

Cemetery is locked up tight. No place to park. Posted "No Trespassing" signs everywhere. I guess you could sneak in....

...but then you'd be headed down Clyde's slippery slope of criminality.

Have to squeeze through the gate to get to the grave.

Clyde Barrow's grave is worth a stop, but would not want to be here at night.

The dead Bonnie and Clyde bandit is honored with graveside donations of empty liquor bottles and shotgun shells.

This was my second visit here, first time in 2008. I wanted to add along with what is posted about the gate issue: this in not a really good neighborhood. So BE SAFE there.
