Abstract:
In the midst of the Saponia Hills, on the banks of the Neuse River, between Goldsboro and Kinston is located seven bubbling springs, each producing a different kind of water. Each spring has a different mineral content, suitable for the relief of certain maladies. Tradition says the waters were well known to the Indians of the area and were first found by Jim Parker in 1815. In 1881, Dr. V. N. Seawell and a Mr. Whitfield opened The Seawell House to accommodate the increasing visitors to the healing waters. The Seven Springs Hotel now caters as a health resort and even ships the waters out of the Spring for those who cannot visit.
