People Used To Flock To This Tiny Nebraska Town To Experience Its Healing Mineral Waters

About 7 miles north of the tiny town of Merna are the only mineral springs in Nebraska. Back at the turn of the 20th century, when mineral bath spas were all the rage, some enterprising men planned to build the area up into a resort around the springs. It didn’t quite work out that way, but we now have this lovely recreation area to enjoy instead.

We definitely enjoy the lovely natural surroundings more than a leisure spa! Have you ever been to Victoria Springs State Recreation Area? Tell us about your favorite part in the comments!
