The legend of Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow as robbers & murderers has taken many twists & turns since the Barrow Gang actually committed their crimes across Texas & the surrounding states in the early 1930s. 

One piece of history is certain:  the train depot in Winnsboro was a key focal point during their two year havoc-filled spree & that ETX connection will be remembered during a special program this Saturday (May 13) at 11 am.

If you're a history buff, make the short drive to take the walking tour & see the reenactments presented by Winnsboro Center For The Arts in conjunction with Texas' Historic Preservation Society's "Step Back In Time" series.

The one-hour event is designed to be both educational & entertaining, recalling one of the main locations Bonnie & Clyde used to make deals for guns & ammunition, as well as the outlaws' view that Winnsboro & the surrounding area was a safe haven.

Note too that the May 13th occasion is called "Bonnie & Clyde's Last Ride", as it was just 10 days later in 1934 when lawmen staged the gruesome ambush outside Shreveport that ended Parker's & Barrow's lives in an instant.  Perhaps most amazing of all is the reality of how fascinated we still are with the Bonnie & Clyde story, almost a century later!
