Grilli Tree

To get to the tree you go to the entrance of Happy Hollow, but you continue down Senter and pass the Historical Park.  You turn left on Phelan (The next part I am not totally sure about because it has been awhile).  You go through a condominium area and down a slight grade.  It may turn into a gravel road.  Last time I was there, the city was parking their big trucks in this area.  You are then in a flat area which is bordered by the Guadalupe River.  Further along to the left you should see two abandoned houses and I think there is an orchard between the houses and the river.   I believe the tree sits between the two houses and I think the plaque is in front of it.
