Our town was famous for its Spring Water, or what they called its Mineral Water. People from all over came to bath or drink of the water. It has been said that it had "Amazing Healing Powers", that the elderly and frail, the stricken and diseased came to be healed. There is even an article that shows an ad for this amazing healing of a sickly man, confined to a wheel chair who could not walk, who was restored to a healthy man
