Old-time Mineral Springs


Author(s):
Abstract:
Believed to have medicinal and restorative qualities, the state's economic and social elite, as well as out-of-state tourists, annually vacationed at these natural features. As springs were discovered hotels and resorts would quickly be erected and some of the oldest establishments included: Hot Springs near Marshall in Madison County (1850), Deaver's Springs near Asheville (1860), Jackson Springs in Moore County (1900), Seven Springs in Wayne County (1865). The popularity of springs also led to some smaller operations which included: Sparkling Catawba Springs near Hickory, Piedmont Springs in Stokes County, Lincoln Lithia Springs outside Lincolnton, and Panacea Springs near Littleton.
