Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum

Directions to this letterbox start from the Forest Park Letterbox, but can easily be found from I-30 in Greenville.

The Audie Murphy/American Cotton museum has a collection of artifacts and memorabilia pertaining to America's most decorated hero. A trip through the museum will also acquaint you with the cotton industry. The museum and gates are open Tues.-Sat. 10a-5p. It is closed Sunday and Monday.

Directions to the Museum:

From Forest Park, turn right on Business 69. Cross over I-30, and take the frontage road east to the Museum. The parking lot is on the right. The letterbox is on the museum property but you do not have go through the museum to find the box. (The Museum itself is very interesting and worth the trip inside!)

Clues to the Letterbox:

From the Audie Murphy statue and sponsor's brick area, find the 3 Presidential Bricks. From there, find the brick for the Texas State Representative from 1989-1993. Standing on this brick, look between the two black WWII markers. You will see a path leading to the historic Ende-Gaillard house. Take the path to the house. From the house, with a bearing of 70 degrees, go to the tree line. Find the only cedar tree in the line. At the base of the tree immediately next to it, look for a hole in the roots. Please recover with plenty of leaves/sticks.
