Altus has been producing wine since the 1800s and is often referred to as the Wine Capital Of Arkansas. The most famous wineries are: Post Familie Vineyard, Mount Bethel Winery, Chateau Aux Arc and Wiederkehr Wine Cellars, the oldest and largest winery in mid-America. For a great view of the area, go to St. Mary's Church, where you can also find this microbox.

From Hwy 64 in Altus, go north on Hwy 186 for about .7 miles to St. Mary's Church on the left. Park in the first lot on the left at a great overlook.

Walk east down the road you came in on for about 50 yards. Turn right and go to an angel statue on a bluff. Facing angel with back to road, go left (east) 28 steps to farthest large rock. The microbox is under near back side under rocks. Please be discreet and replace as described.
