DIRECTIONS TO KILLOUGH MONUMENT
This is one of the boulders guarding the green gate.
The moss reminded me of fingernail marks...
Option 1:A. From the intersection of Highway 69 & Farm/Market (FM) Road 855 go west on FM 855 until you reach FM 3405. People say there used to be a sign.. exactly, USED to be. We learned that the hard way.
B. Turn left on FM 3405 and go just about .4 miles to FM 3411. FM 3405 is the FIRST right after Larissa Cemetery. There is a church on the left-hand side once you turn onto that road. The road is not far from the cemetery so slow down once you reach it!
C. Turn right on FM 3411 and go .6 miles until you reach FM 3431 with a green gate with a huge boulder on either side. It really is pretty creepy looking.
D. Turn left and proceed through the gate – the monument and cemetery are at the end of the road.
If you were like us and didn't have prior knowledge and used Internet directions, we just found a county road and hoped it would lead us there. In case you decide you want to do this: drive forever until you reach CO RD 3414. Turn left onto that... you will eventually reach 3411 and make that left. You will follow that road for an eternity and you will come upon 3431 on the right hand side. Trust me, go with Option 1.
Also, that drive is straight out of the movie Wrong Turn, I would suggest not going out there at night for two reasons. 1. There could be people vandalizing or conducting other criminal activities and you certainly don't want to get caught up in a situation like that. And 2, you could get lost; really lost and it's scary. If you decide to go for it at night, good luck and I warned you.
