Dead Man's Hole
Dead Man's Hole, located south of Marble Falls in southern Burnet County, is a deep, 160-foot hole discovered in 1821 by entomologist Ferdinand Lueders. The cave achieved notoriety during the Civil War as a dumping place for the bodies of Union sympathizers. The remains of several bodies were recovered from the cave in the late 1860s, but the presence of gas prevented extensive exploration.
River City Grille
Marble Falls was founded in 1887 by Gen. Johnson. He and a group of entrepreneurs launched Marble Falls Cotton and Woolen Co., which made textile products in the mill built on the north bank of the Colorado River at the south entrance of the city. The old textile mill property, now River City Grille, was once an economic driver for the Highland Lakes. The falls used to be in this location which created the power to support the industry. The property has become the site of Riverbend Conference Center, Hampton Inn, Chili’s and River City Grille. In the 1970s, officials installed a historical marker adjacent to the property.
