1. Andrews Geyser Marker
Inscription. This geyser was built in 1912 by George Fisher Baker of New York, as a tribute to his friend Colonel Alexander Boyd Andrews, of Raleigh, North Carolina, and in appreciation for the great public service he rendered in the development and upbuilding of western North Carolina.

Andrews Geyser was restored in 1976 by the Town of Old Fort, with contributions from the people of western North Carolina, and dedicated as a public park, for the use and enjoyment of all.

Your cooperation in caring for these facilities will be appreciated and insure the use of Andrews Geyser as a park, for the benefit of future generations.
