In 1890 a geyser was built on the grounds of the Round Knob Hotel, a favorite railroad stop in Old Fort, and it ceased functioning in 1903. Enter George Baker, a New York banker and board member of many railroad companies. He commissioned a new one to be built to honor his friend, Colonel Alexander Andrews, a noted Confederate soldier who oversaw the building of the Western North Carolina Railroad, and the 120 men who died building it through the NC mountains.
