The Story Behind This Abandoned Natural Spring In Missouri Is Incredibly Unique

Missouri springs are a favorite among locals looking to take a dip into some refreshing, crystal clear water on a hot summer day. But at one point in time, some believed these springs to have healing powers.

Welch Spring is located 2 miles north of Akers on Highway K in Newton Township. Visitors can take a half-mile hike to view the ruins or canoe in. Do you really think these springs have healing powers? Or was Dr. Diehl completely off with his claims?
