Location. 39° 30.536′ N, 87° 27.601′ W. Marker is in Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, in Vigo County. Marker is on Grotto Drive (aka: College Road 10) west of College Road 3, on the right. Click for map. I find it best to take the East Entrance into the location off of St. Marys Road. Then go all the way in - past the water tower (keep it to your left) - then you should run into "Grotto Drive". Turn left to get to the Marker and the Grotto. Marker is in this post office area: Saint Mary of the Woods IN 47876, United States of America.
