Believe me or not but this is the solemn truth. I visited Dead Man's hole a while back. Heard about it my entire life (was once on family land). My wife stayed in the car while I checked out the hole. Got back in the...More

We first went here 4 years ago. The kids loved it and my husband loves teasing them about it.....”if you don’t behave, we will throw you in Dead Man’s hole!” Quick stop off the road, read the marker. Takes all of 10 minutes!

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 a bit of history, not much to see but maybe give you a push to do some research. It is not easy to find, just a basic street sign on the road, Dead Mans Drive. It is in a nice area for a...More

Was recommended by our hostess at the resort. Interesting bit of history. Not hard to find and not much to see, but do a bit of research on the web to get the full story.
