Clyde's grave. I had no idea what I would find when I set out on THIS adventure. Old dead grass--knee high in places, fences in disrepair--all in a neighborhood where I prayed for protection. Loved it. And there it is... Clyde Barrow's grave. It was...More

The cemetery is in complete disarray and needs help. Some of the gravestones are broken, the grass is about knee height, and it's in a pretty bad neighborhood. The cemetery is locked with a chain, but it's easy to slip through and completely legal during...More

This cemetary is in such a disgraceful state. The grass was so tall it hit my knees in some areas. You have to park on the side of the cemetary and there is a small unlocked gate you can enter at.

Curiosity brought us here, having just visited Bonnie Parker's grave in Webb Chapel Cemetery. We knew where to go, but the gate had a lock on it and didn't feel comfortable entering with "No Trespassing" signs everywhere. Looks like the cemetery has not been maintained...More

We are history lovers and had to swing by here. The gate was open, so we went in. Easily found Clyde and Marvin (Buck) Barrows' graves. They are set up line a shrine. It was a bit interesting to see that people would want to...More

This is pretty cool. If you like outlaw history this is the place to visit. Pretty easy to find The Barrow Graves to. Just go under the chained gate and turn immediately to your left and go straight back. We have there 3xs and every...More

Clyde Barrow was a bad dude and when he died the family buried him in the family plot not far from the family gas station in west Dallas. The gas station still stands a few blocks north, but being "in the business," the burial place...More

After reading reviews, I was expecting there to be an array of trash and beer bottles scattered throughout. Surprisingly, it was fairly well kept. Still locked, with no trespassing signs posted around the property. Worth the risk.
