Near Gibsland, Louisiana, Bonnie & Clyde met their demise. I’ve been to this area several times over the years, and seem to learn something new each time. Recently, I made a return trip to the area.
You may have seen the many movies that portrayed the story of Bonnie & Clyde as a romance. Recently, I returned to the Gibsland area, and much of the Bonnie & Clyde story leads me to believe that the romance sounds likely, but the couple, with some others, left a trail of death from the many crimes that they committed in several locations throughout the southwest.
In Gibsland, you can’t miss the Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum and the Authentic Bonnie & Clyde Festival Museum. Both museums seem to be rivals, within 75 yards of each other. The Authentic Bonnie & Clyde Festival Museum is free, and donations are accepted for the Bonnie & Clyde Festival that is held every May. The Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum has a very informative film, and A LOT of memorabilia.

I’ve been going through my wife’s spiral notebook of our hundreds of rv (& other) travel destinations, and looking through our photos, while organizing and posting them in our Journal at TomsMaHauL.com . There, you’ll also see some of my posts on our “Future Travels” of planned adventures, and my “Projects” section, where I share some of the on-going things that I do to maintain the rv. Visit the “About” page to get more of my story, and there’s our “Contact” page, to reach out to us.
