1. Owens Creek Marker
Inscription. The sounds of a busy woodland stream and the quiet murmur of a lazy waterfall have long been stilled here. Only after a heavy rainfall does water fill the stream and set the waterfall singing.
     Over the years the water table has dropped several feet, and the spring which feeds Owens Creek has all but disappeared.
     Little remains of a scene once familiar to early residents of the Rocky Springs community.
 
Erected by National Park Service.
