Pretty Boy Floyd

This is the childhood home of Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd in Bartow County. He lived there until he was about seven years old. Floyd (February 3, 1904 – October 22, 1934) was a well-known bank robber. His criminal adventures created extensive press coverage in the 1930s. He was hunted down and killed by a group of men led by Melvin Purvis. Pretty Boy Floyd continues to be a familiar name in American culture. Some people say he was notorious, but other people say his life was tragic because of the Great Depression.
