This Alabama state park features two giant springs that flow from a natural aquifer below. Not only is this a great place to cool off on a hot summer day, the history of land surrounding these springs is also fascinating to learn about.

History

Blue Springs has long been appreciated by settlers to the area. The first hotel opened up near the springs in 1890 called the Harrison Hotel.  The Harrison Hotel capitalized on the crystal clear and rejuvenating waters of the natural springs so much that a health spa was inspired. Later, in 1900, a second hotel was erected called the Blue Springs Hotel.

After years in operation and providing an event location for local Alabamians, the property was sold to the state of Alabama in 1963. It has since been a state park.
