On an 1870's map of Washington County (at left) it lists a "HAUNTED SPRING".

This is the story from Blanche Owens:  "There was a spring about 1/4 of a mile from where I was raised............they said the spring was haunted.  The story was that there was a woman that drowned at the spring.  Sometime when there was a storm people said you could see a woman in a white dress at the spring. That is the story I remember being told."
