We found this spot because of geocaching! It's an interesting piece of history for this part of the country - I'm sure this isn't the only such place in the country! Just a quick stop for history buffs -- nothing spectacular but worth the fun,...More

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!

Dead Man's Hole is a very interesting place explaining a dark piece of history in Burnet County. The site itself is easy to access, a very short walk from parking. Of course the hole itself is covered up for safety reasons but I'm glad it...More

It’s a covered hole, you may miss it if you are not looking. Weird and creepy side stop. The hole is covered so no one can fall in, and there is a historical marker telling the history of the hole.

I was vary unimpressed when I can and all I found was a hole you could dig in a day. Atlease it's free.

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

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
