Calif Spring

If you walk a couple of blocks southwest of Basin Spring, where our tour began yesterday, you’ll come to Calif Spring (various spellings throughout the years) on the grounds of the Eureka Springs Historical Museum. The spring is now sealed in a rock roundhouse, where in years past its waters were purified by ultraviolet light.

The museum gift shop kindly carries a few copies of my “People of the Waters” novels, if you’re in town and looking!
