Union Hill is a road cut just north of Mineral Wells, TX. I visited this site in 2003 and again in 2015.
To get there, go north on 281, a few miles out of Mineral Wells, turn left on Union Hill Road (FM3027).
Stop at the first road cut, about 2 miles.
Both sides of the road cut have a bounty of fossils laying loose on the surface.
The fossils are loose in the shale. At least a dozen or more different animals can be found.
Look for these at Union Hill.
They are the bases of a species of free floating crinoid.
Look carefully and you may find the pieces of the upper section of the cup and reconstruct the calyx.
This is a sampling of the other fauna at the Union Hill site.
