My adult son talked me into going there which is in the middle of nowhere. The rocky path that led up to it was pretty cool. When we got there, my teenage daughter and mother refused to get off the car! Lol The history of...More

My husband found this spot on a 'map' we picked up of the area so we decided to 'find it'. It was up a road that you normally wouldn't choose and had to circle back to find the actual spot. Not much else there except...More

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

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.
