ARMSTRONG SPRINGS - Label for the "miracle water"

Native Americans discovered it first, then an Alabama blacksmith acquired the old watering hole that became known as Armstrong Springs. The health resort that sprang up on the spot a few miles west of Searcy attracted visitors from afar, and the miracle water was shipped throughout the country. When the resort faded, the area became a Catholic school for boys - the Morris Institute. Today, the water, the resort and the school are all gone, a unique page in White County history.
