— Grayson Highlands State Park —
Coming from deep within the mountains, the cold water ran constantly even during the hot summer months. Like today's refrigerators, it helped extend the storage life of perishable foods.
If it was not cold enough on a shelf above the water, canned goods or milk were partially submerged right in the flowing water. Imagine tasting fresh cow's milk chilled by clear, cold spring water!
