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

This is an interesting spot to see at least once. It has an historical significance from the early days of Burnet County that can be instructive. Take CR401 to the east from US281 (south of Marble Falls) or north from TX71 just east of the...More

I wouldn't make a special trip just for this. But my 8 and 9 year olds loved the story and history of this cool hole!

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.

Very interesting, and a liitle creepy (because of the Dead Bodies) but worth finding. About half way down 401 off of 2147. It's okay if you miss it as there is another very interesting Historical Marker at Hwy 71 were 401 ends. Be sure to...More

This is an interesting spot from a geological standpoint as well as its infamous historical significance. There is a nice historical marker on site and a nice parking area but I think it could be developed a little further to provide more information for visitors,...More
