Trip Planner: USA / Missouri / Joplin / Bonnie and Clyde's Joplin Garage Apartment Hideout
The Bonnie and Clyde Garage Apartment is located at 3347½ Oak Ridge Drive in Joplin, Newton County, Missouri, though it actually fronts on 34th Street. The apartment was the location where the Barrow gang hid out after a series of robberies in Missouri and neighboring states. After twelve days, neighbors reported suspicious behavior and on April 13, 1933, the Joplin Police Department raided the apartment. Two of the police officers were killed by the fleeing fugitives. Undeveloped photographs, left behind by the gang, helped the authorities eventually stop the gang. Stolen merchandise tied the gang concretely to a robbery in Joplin during their stay there. It was built about 1927, and is a two-story building on a poured concrete foundation. It has a gently pitched hipped roof and exposed rafter ends in the American Craftsman style.Put Bonnie and Clyde's Joplin Garage Apartment Hideout at the forefront of your travel plans using our Joplin trip builder website.
The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) on May 15, 2009 and the listing was announced as the featured listing in the National Park Service's weekly list of May 22, 2009.
The house was restored and decorated in a 1930s style for use as a bed and breakfast, but after the May 2011 Joplin tornado and the resulting housing shortage, the owner made it available under long-term lease as a single-family residence.

Truly enjoyed staying here and the history of the building is what brought us to it. The owner is so nice and fast to respond, and knows the history well. The apartment is clean and well kept. Its a quiet neighborhood. Highly recommend it.
Really neat place. Interesting how a shootout took place right here from Bonnie and Clyde.
