A gushing spring, largest of many along Spring Branch, once flowed here. Early pioneers, Osage Indians, and military personnel stopped to camp here and drink the mineral waters, believed to have curative powers. During the Victorian Era, when the city became a health spa, the spring was the centerpiece of Springs Park on this block. It ceased to flow with the advent of lead and zinc mining to the west.
