Spring

Update 2017-10-24: What Barber Pool looked like in its heyday.

My father told me there used to be a bath house on River Street west of downtown Valdosta, fed by an artesian well. I remember decades ago there being tumble-down buildings. In recent years I never could locate them. Turns out that’s because it became John W. Saunders Park, 1151 River Street, Valdosta, Georgia.

Scotty Jay led me to the spring, which is to the left as you face the amphitheater.

Water is supposed to come out of that pipe.

If there were any water, it would flow down that channel.

Scotti Jay says the pools used to be where the playing fields are now, on each side of the walk to the amphitheater.
