Off Hwy 3, Blackville South Carolina
Native Americans believed in the springs' natural healing powers and brought wounded Revolutionary War Soldiers here to drink. Locals still believe in the springs' powers and drink its waters. In 1944, the acre of land the springs are on was legally deeded to GOD by LP "Luke" Boylston.
This mystical little area is next to the Healing Springs Baptist Church. Four springs bubble up cool water. Recorded analysis shows the spring's water contains properties of sodium carbonate, potassium sulfate, iron sesquioxide, ammonia and silica.
