Hike To This Spring In Delaware That’s Said To Have Mystical Healing Powers

Delaware’s history is full of legends and lore, but none perhaps as impactful as the story of Chalybeate Spring. The small natural spring in the hills of the Brandywine Valley was rumored to heal and refresh those who drank its waters. It became such a popular attraction that within a few years, there was an enormous resort and amusement park on the grounds! Though the park is long gone, the spring itself was recently rediscovered in the back of a county park.

You can visit the spring at Brandywine Spring Park, located at 3300 Faulkland Road, Wilmington, DE 19808. If you would like to be a part of the restoration efforts, contact Friends of Brandywine Springs.
