Thousands visited this artesian well in the early 1900s to drink its mineral water believed to cure stomach, liver and kidney ailments. It and the adjacent Water Plant, built in 1885, were part of 54 acre Lancaster Park which also included a zoo, a large goldfish and lily pond, bandstand, children's playground, and Johnny's popcorn stand.
