This box is located in Dialville. To get to Dialville, go south on Highway 69 in Jacksonville till you get to Loop 456. Turn right on Loop 456 until you get to 347 and turn left. Stay on 347 until you get to downtown Dialville. From the intersection of Loop 456 and 347, go 5.8 miles to 1910 and turn right. Go 0.5 mile on 1910 and you will see Rocky Springs Cemetery. Turn into the church/cemetery parking lot and follow the road until you are next to the basketball court on your right and a little wooden shed on your left. Park next to the wooden shed.
To get to the letterbox, stand in front of the ramp in front of the wooden shed, with your back to the shed. Look to your right and you will see a large tree that looks like it is three trees growing from one stump. The box is located where the three trunks meet under leaves and sticks.
Getting to the letterbox is easy, but to understand the connection between Gone With the Wind and this location, you will need to go a little further. From the tree where the letterbox is located, look across the cemetery and you will see see a wrought iron fence a little to your right and then further up the hill you will see a second wrought iron fence a little to your left. Walk to the second wrought iron fence, and then look at the grave on the right outside of the fence. There is a historical marker there that explains it.
Please recover the box really well. The church is still in use. Please email me and let me know the condition of the box when you find it. ENJOY!!!
