I discovered Dead Man's Hole while driving down the country road taking pictures of beautiful wildflowers in the spring. It is an historic site in Texas a few miles south of Marble Falls. It is a hole in the ground that is very deep where...More

Not well marked from 281. Area unkept. Kind of creepy area but nice piece of history. But mostly just a marker.

There are no signs from 281 guiding you to this historical site, nor are there any as you get closer on the local roads. If you don't plan ahead and check out the directions, you won't even know you passed it. When you do find...More

Stopped here on our way out of Marble Falls. Interesting story but not much to look at. The marker is on a paved road. Watch for the sign or you will pass it.

So, my teenager talked us into visiting. It's a little ways from the main road and just past new construction homes. It wasn't too much to see. My son conducted an EVP (probably watches too much Ghost Adventures) he received no sounds however... he did...More
