  • Description: Frankfort Springs was once a spa in the mid 1800's where people basked in the mineral rich waters.By 1912 the springs closed as a health spa and the water was bottled and sold to nearby towns. The springs are located within the upper end of a thickly wooded ravine within a U-shaped sandstone and shale grotto. The springs are located across from a small waterfall where a stream spills over the rim of the ravine. The water from the falls comes from surface drainage where the water from the springs flows from an underground reservoir.
