Healing Springs was discovered in 1885, originally called Thompson's Bromine and Arsenic Springs, Mr. V. Thompson who owned the property in 1886 launched an extensive campaign, advertising the water as a "medical beverage, performing miraculous cures."

The water was bottled at the spring in one-half gallon bottles and sold for $6.00 a case. The nearest railroad station was then about 35 miles away and for ten years, from 1888 to 1898, it is estimated that an average of 50 wagons a day were kept busy hauling the water to the nearest railroad station to be shipped to various parts of the country.

The original spring house built around 1900. In the fall of 2013, it was hit by a large tree and it caused a significant colapse of most of the structure.

Our goal is to rebuild the spring house in the orignal style. We encourage people to come and enjoy the healing spring waters!
