“Children's Lake”This seven-acre, man-made lake was created in the 1750s to power the iron works once located at the lower end. The lake is fed by about 30 natural springs clustered behind the tavern and at the upper end of the lake. The daily output is approximately 22 million gallons of 53-degree water. The springs surge from underground streams located some 1800 feet below the surface. Because of the bubbling water, early settlers named the area Boiling Springs.
