I dug these out back in the

I dug these out back in the late seventies or eighties. Forget the exact year. Roger Davis owned the land then, not sure if he still does. The old baths were about a mile North towards Eagleville on I believe Bill Cockrell's land. They were commonly known as the squaw baths.

The squaw baths were very popular with the locals and one often had to wait for others to finish bathing before one could bath themselves. I asked Roger Davis if I could dig out the spring I knew was on his land and he said yes, and thus these new baths were born. Not long after Bill Cockrell filled in the squaw baths because of trash and garbage being left and eventually these baths became known. Now it is the one most associated. I think they inherited the names squaw baths.
