Bonnie and Clyde Dexfield Park Shootout

I visited this on June 13, 2020, and the Bonnie and Clyde marker has been removed. The only thing there now is the second marker about Dexfield Park.

[Tim Nooteboom, 06/16/2020]

We spoke with the director of the local museum, who said that the Bonnie and Clyde marker had slipped on its base, and was removed for repairs and reinforcement so it wouldn't slip again. We were told that the marker will "hopefully be back up soon."
