The once active spring provided a natural stopping place for travelers on the Natchez Trace and helped establish and sustain the rural community of Rocky Springs. The 25 square mile town, which included a post rider relay station prospered for approximately100 years surviving many hardships, but a boll weevil infestation devastated the economy. Today, an inactive church, cemetery, cisterns and safes are the only reminders of a once prosperous rural community.
