AIRBNB The Bonnie and Clyde Garage Apartment in Joplin

(64804) – Bonnie and Clyde called Joplin home for 13 days back in 1933. Traveling across the Midwest during the Great Depression, with their gang, robbing people and killing when cornered or confronted. It's no doubt they are possibly the most famous and most romanticized criminal couple in American history.

And now you can step back in time and experience history since their 'hideout apartment' is part of the Airbnb community.

The Bonnie & Clyde Garage Apartment owner states on AIRBNB, "I am a lifelong resident of the area and was always fascinated by this property.  We are thrilled to own a little piece of history and look forward to sharing it with the AIRBNB community.” 

The story goes that police were tipped off and showed up here on April 13, 1933. There was shootout - tragically killing 2 local law enforcement officers. Bonnie and Clyde & their gang fled but left  things behind like jewelry and a roll of film.

The Joplin Globe developed the film for the Joplin Police and FBI.  That picture  published was the first image America had of these criminals who called Joplin home for a few weeks. And it's the same photo still most-recognizable to this day.  

If you are tech-savvy then you know about AIRBNB, aka Air Bed And Breakfast.  It's where you  can rent a room or home like you would a hotel room for a nightly rate.  

If you need to catch up a little (like us), all communication goes through the AIRBNB site, using only first names keeping it professional between owner/renter so you don't have to navigate personalities.  Let AIRBNB do the middle man work. 

Is it safe to rent from an individual instead of a hotel?  These 'technology based companies', aka TNC's, meet MO state requirements so no need for business licenses, permits, inspections etc.  The background and information the TNC gathers meets the state requirements. 

Then reviews and reports from consumers assure AIRBNB and future renters that it continues to be a clean and safe environment.  

AIRBNB goes on to state, “This five room apartment is located upstairs. The Barrow gang chose this location due to the 360 degree views from here, making the apartment bright and airy. 

You can watch the original movie "Bonnie & Clyde" in the living room where some of the events took place. 

Or, read Blanche Barrows book, MY LIFE WITH BONNIE AND CLYDE written from Blanches diaries. There is an entire chapter written about the events that took place during their 13 day stay in this apartment.”
