” white sulphur springs”
In the late 1800s, European settlers began promoting White Sulphur Springs, located on the banks of the Suwannee River at the Stephen Foster Center, as a health resort, advertising the sulphuric waters as a cure for almost any ailment. In 1906 the spring was enclosed with gates and a high concrete wall to keep the river out. Buildings on either side of the spring contained shops, dressing rooms, and clinical examination rooms. Among the resort’s many famous visitors were Henry Ford and Teddy Roosevelt. The spring house continued to attract visitors as late as the 1950s. Today the original concrete wall and gate still exist.
