Title

Waconda Springs, Mitchell County

Subject

The Great Spirit Water of Waconda Springs:
Mitchell County, Kansas, 1884-1964

Description

Waconda Springs no longer exists, its memory still lives on. Stories are told by those who remember the sacred site and those who had lived it. Nowadays with all the historical landmark laws, Waconda Springs would have never been bulldozed down. Some say that the legend of the Great Spring just expanded its medicinal powers into Glen Elder Lake, which covers the sacred site today.
