Natural springs containing minerals with medicinal qualities

In approximately 1842, West Allen Williams was riding through his property and became thirsty. He came to a spot that was damp and discovered clear trickling water under leaves and vines. After having the waters analyzed, it was found that the water contained minerals of medicinal qualities. News of the water quickly spread and visitors came from miles around. On December 6th of 1852, by an act of State Legislature, the Town of Williamston was chartered on this very land. Today, visit the Town of Williamston and re-discover the Mineral Springs Park and the rich history of this community. They even have an annual Spring Water Festival!
