Soothing Waters


Abstract:
In the 19th-century, many people vacationed at elaborate resorts located near mineral-rich springs, where days were passed in dining and socializing. Vacationers were eager to partake of the waters which were said to be therapeutic. By the 1920s, medical advances brought an end to the resorts and their healing waters. Westbrook describes four of the most popular springs: Jackson Springs (Moore County); Fuquay Springs (Wake County); Mount Vernon Springs (Chatham County); and Hot Springs (Madison County).
