For thousands of years man has touted the healing properties and magical abilities of the fountain of youth. From drinking the water to actually bathing in it, people claim to have been magically cured of their ailments. In 1884, one such fountain of youth in North Carolina was discovered in Crumpler and a healing springs resort soon followed. By the late 1880s, it would consist of a hotel (which burned to the ground in 1962) and by the early 1900s, rustic cabins were added.

The Fountain of Youth healing spring and The Cabins at Healing Springs are open year-round. Learn more from the official website, or by calling (336)982-6262.
