Pottsville, TX is on FM 218 about 13 miles west of Hamilton, TX (about 70 miles southwest of Ft Worth). As you get into Pottsville watch for CR 618 at the corner of the post office--it turns north. Turn and go straight up CR 618. There will be a sign that says "dead end"--ignore it. Continue up the hill to the closed double gate across the road--our driveway turns right before you hit the double gate. Do NOT turn on CR 619 where it curves off CR 618--stay straight and go up the hill. You can see our house from FM 218--just look up the hill behind the post's a green house on top of the hill.
If you are pulling a camper, please watch for an open double gate on the right with a “Camper Parking” sign before you go up the hill—campers will park there.
Pottsville is very small—NO gas, NO food/ice—closest is Hamilton to the east.
