This photograph of "The Big Spring", as it appeared in 1866, was placed here under the auspices of The Tyrone Area Bicentennial Committee when they rededicated The Chief Logan Monument on August 13, 1976

The spring, which was situated adjacent to the far side of Washington Avenue (over your left shoulder) was maintained as a Community scenic attraction until its waster supply became greatly diminished and it was filled in to ground level in 1960
