Gibsland, Louisiana

I visited this little old town today to check out the Bonnie & Clyde connection.

What a quaint quiet town. It has a couple of museums, a gas station and cafe.

The free museum was closed only open Wednesday and weekends.

I paid $7 to get into the quirky one, he has two old ford coupes inside made up like Bonnie and Clyde stolen V8, gun holes and all, lots of old memorabilia, photos and some tatty old displays but all in all it tells a story, the guy is related to the Minton’s who was one of posse who shot Bonnie and Clyde . The building is also part of the old cafe where Bonnie and Clyde had breakfast just before that fatal day. Bit of history.

He is a friendly chap and his cat loves to be patted nice visit.

I drove around and found the service station with plaque where they got gas.

Then headed on down to the ambush site where they were shot and killed by Harmer and posse.

This town could be something if they got their act together with re-enactment a of that day, museums gift shops cafes and accusation is going begging for some bright entrepreneur. Plenty old buildings and I reckon it would as good if not better than tombstone.
