Long Description:

THE MINERAL SPRING On July 17, 1819, this spring and surrounding land were purchased from Henry King by the Darlington Mineral Springs Company, intent upon developing the site as a benificial spa. The enterprise was abandoned soon after the death of the chief promoter.

DARLINGTON DISTRICT AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY On May 5, 1846, a society was organized for "mutual improvement in agriculture and to promote the planting interest of the country" Most of the annual meetings since that time have been held at this spring. The first officers were W.E. James, Rev. J.M. Timmons, Isaac D. Wilson, Robert Rogers, and Rev. Robert Campbell.
