The other day I had discovered this park not far from my home; Wall Springs Park.  I could not imagine what this spring was like in the early 1900's, It must of been awesome.  I wished that it was preserved and could be in use today, but it was destroyed and now just a park with the spring not being used. This would have been so healing!!!

The property in and around "Wall Springs" was purchased by Charles F. Wall on February 28, 1884 and remained in his family until May 17, 1927 when the property was sold to Harry W. Davis.

The spring became known as "Wall Springs" during ownership by the Wall family. Once the property was sold to the Davis family the spring became known as "Health Springs" and was used as a health spa. When the property was purchased by the Cullen Family on February 6, 1948 the spring name changed back to "Wall Springs" and the area was used as a recreational area until the mid - 1960's.
The spring and adjoining pond were used as a spa & bathing area from the turn of the 20th century until the mid 1960'
