GLENN SPRINGS.
Its History fi om Its Discovery,
with Personal Sketches cf Its
Habitues.
BY MRS T. SUMTER MEAN'S.
''Th*vyj?net finis the w*ter, but the man

And iVels out blind nt first, disorganized j
By:sin r the Mood,-hts spirit-insight dulled I
And crossed by his sensations. Presently

Then m<?rk, ??e r^vrreat, be obedient.
For such dumb mo??ons of imperfect life

Alloting the Hereafter."
It is an idea of some French writer j
that the constitution of mineral waters j
ii anaUgous tb that of the serum of j
the blood. Such a speculation is au- ?
thorized, if not sustained by watching I
the reviving elects of mineral waters j
on the human syste n To draw a j
strict line of demarcation between !
ordinary and mineral water is scarcely j
possible. The Excess of mineral j
constituents or temperature are often j
so undefined, that it is only by the j
therapeutic action, they can at ali be
classified.
The water of Glenn Springs is as j
pronounced in its effects on the body !
as that of any Spa in the United j
States, aud the appropriate sphere of i
this water in the treatment of chronic
diseases, and its tonic properties in j
nervous prostration, etc , are thor- J
oughly recognized by the medical j
men ofSouth (yandina, and the adjoin
iog States Its heal reputation has
long been established, and, despite
the fact of its !ymg far in the interior
of the State and off of tiie direct line
of railroads, it is every year increas?
ing in popn?ar?ry and patronage The
late Dr. John Darby, in a private let?
ter written whilst he was Professor
in the University of New Yolk, said :
"I use it frequently :o my private j
practice here, by sending special j
orders for it. If it were on dtaught !
or in bottles in the city, ss other min?
eral waters are, I would introduce it
to general notice. In certain dis?
orders it is invaluable "
Its therapeutic action in cases of
dyspepsia, diabetes, gravel, inflamma?
tion of the bladder, dropsy, jaundice, j
anos nia after fevers, from enlarge I
men; of the spleen, etc., chronic dtnr- ;
rhoa, diseases of the skin, nervous ?
affections and a whole catagory of j
female complaints, is markedly bene i
ficial ; in many instances sufferers
having been, through the use of the
water, restored to perfect health
The climate is good, the chantry
undulating, and the comity town o? j
Spartanburg only twelve miles dis !
tant; the State Asylum for .Mutes;
and Blind; the pretty gorge of
Golightly Falls, are all pleasant drives j
to relieve the visitors from monotony j

consumptive chances to visit Glenn's j
Spring the proprietors advise them
cot to taste the water.
lt has been au interesting task to
trace the history of this spring back
to its discovery. The first settlers of
this portion of the backwoods of South
Carolina found the spot a quagmire,
and known to the Indians as a "deer-.
lick." It was soon noticeable to ?
them, loo, that the cows loved to
browse around it, and lap the water i
that Settled here and there amid the ?
black mud in little pools. From the
peculiar smell pervading the mud, it
came to be designated as the "Sui
phar Swamp."
This section then belonged to North
Carolin?, and was tn Mecklenburg
County. For many years after the
State lines were established it was
known as the "New Acquisition "
We find it constantly so called in the
Documentary History of the Revolu?
tion. Later on it took the name of
$inety-Six District, but finally the ,
quagmire fell into the lower edge o? i
a county laid off and named Spartan- !
burg.
The curative qualities of the spot !
were revealed by a commonplace ac- ;
C?dent. During the Revolutionary
war, from the unavoidable filth of.
camp life, scabbier, or as it is vulgarly
termed, "the itch," was the plague
of the rank and file of the American
army After the war, the irritating j
disease "stuck closer than a brother/' ?

he found himself entirely well of t!

been a man of thought. f??r he toi
the cue, marched the whnle family i
to the swamp for a mud bath, and tl
result was they were all heaie
True, some of them, had to dip mo
than once, but finally all were cure
Of course such good luck was to
from, one to another, and the piai
was resorted to by the country full
for mi'es around, and used for mi
baths, by those affected wi tb sk
diseases
A long dry spell of weather in 180
or thereabouts, dried np the "Sulpm
Swamp." and revealed at its edge
clear, running spring. Many fit
stone fountains were dried up at trie
sources, and a family living near tl;
spring were glad to u e the water,
had a queer taste, and curdled wlie
soap was put in it, yet they felt a
sured that it was good to drink, an
soon grew to like the peculiar ll ive
belonging to it. Other water, aft?
drinking from the new spring, seeme
to lack seasoning.. It came topas;
therefore, even after the drought wa
broken, and oilier springs were co;
venient, the family would often pr?
fer the water of this spring. A droj
sical old kinsman visited them, and i
was suggested that the queer tastin,
water might help bim Its action o
kidneys and skin was unmissable, an
in a few weeks he was convinced tba
the use ol the water had benefit* e
him. De continued to drink it, tint:
he was restored to health.

P Means built a two-storied fipjffis
frame house on a bill near the
mineral spring. Strange to 1
say, part of this house is
still in use. The water was sui
fioiently known as a curative
agency to create a demand for :

and he had at all times under his roo
some visitors using the water for thei:
health's sake. Mr. Means ?old th?
place ?n I?25-26 to Mr. Ji4?n B

to the spring was now reduced to less
than five hundred acres, for which lu

enlarged his house, and opened a reg
ular inn for the travelling public. lie
was a man much beloved hy all who
knew him, and finally the minetal
spring took his name', arid has evei
since been definitely known as
Glenn's Spring.
The opacity of his hotel did not at
all meet the demands of the public,
and Mr. Glenn built a number of log
cabins on the hiilsi le, leading to the
spting, to rent to families;. Gentle?
men, from the adjoining districts, by
permission, built cabins for their own
use, and Glenn's Spring cann? to Ix;
the summe/ resort of many prominent
up country families.
Let us make a seeming digression,
to say something of these people who
first brought Glenn's Spring into fifen
o roo
eral and permanent popularity :
For matty years the stamp of their
individuality was recognizable on the
company who congregate] there

j Among these early habilites of Glenn's

j was scimitar edged at times, ils very

j the Smiths and Bobos of Spartanbnrg;
! Irvine of Greenville ; Moorman, Fier
j son and McLmore.of Newberry, are
j the names of the first drinkers of the
! "medicine waters " Shadows flitting
j across the face of the camera, so
j ghost like, we cannot print their pic?
tures here. Enough to say : they
i were men and women of the old South
lt was in the summer of 1835, that
fifteen gentlemen, then at Glenn
: Springs, conceived th? idea of form
; iug a stock company to buy the prop?
erty of Mr. Glenn, and build a fine
j hotel.
It was during al o this year that
: Dr. McMahon, of Union County, quite
I a young tuan, fell into ill health. His
; father was a tuan of wealth, and the
son at once consulted the best physi?
cians in the S ate Finding himself
growing steadily worse, he went to
New York and Philadelphia, atid had
the opinion of the most eminent medi?
cal men in the United States All
gave lite same diagnosis. His heart
was incurably diseased, and they ad
I vised him to return ' onie and accept
the inevitable. Iiis father, to soothe
the declining days of the young man,
put servant, horses and carriage at
his command. The invalid went to
Limestone Spring, then a popular
summer resort. Whilst there, some
one advise h'-m to go to Glenn Springs,
and try the miner.;! water for his Case.
Th ; drowning man critches at a straw;
li? went, immediately to Glenn
Springs, and began to drink the water.
In ten (lavs he felt that he was more
comfo table than he had been in
mouths. At the enl of a month he

could walk several hundred yards. He
: went home to let his father see his im
: provement, but returned in a short
while, and remained, steadily drinking
tue water for five mouths. At the end
; of this ;ime he felt himself perfectly re?
stored to health ; he entered on the
active life of a country doctor, and
continued in this career until an ad?
vanced ag??, without any return of the
disease that had so seriously menaced
him an ea; ly death.
lt was this notable cure, which for
! mutated the idea of a stock company
into a reality. The charter was ob
tained in 1S3? under the name of
"The Glenn** Spring Company; ' Dr.
Maurice A Moore, President. They
gave Mr Glenn fifteen thousand dol j
?ats for the property, and at once got j
a plan for a hotel The specifications
called for the best heart pine, post
oak and poplar materials.
' Voa h:'.ve heard cf the wonderful one-hoss
shay,
That ? ii huilt in ?uc!i a logeai w ly

ll was on this plan that the Glenn's
Spring Hotel was built.

I feet in he'ejfht Three winsfs. two
stories m height, fifty feet in length !
Dining-room, drawing ioom and ball?
room, fifty feet each. Mr Murray, ?? !
'notable landscape gardener, was j
j
employed to lay ont the grounds and

laid out the money of the company so j
rapidly that they were fain to stop j
him before ii-' half carried out his
ideas Bat li) : beautiful trees now
growing i.n tire campus, shading the
cottages and walks, wet?; planted
under h's supervision Handsome
furniture was ordered from Now York
for parlor, dining room and card
rooms. A line meat and pastry cook
was secured, and a string hand em
ployed The company determined
that ail tin? auspices ot the establish?
ment should be in fine style. July,
1>'3S, the new hotel was opened. The
public showed its appreciation by
giving a liberal patronage. Tiavel
ling was then done oji dirt toads ;
private vehicles and public stages
constantly roiled up to the door,
bringing loads of visitors to Glenn's
Spring July, August, and patt of
September, the house was full, and
often crowded. The season, however,
was too short, and the expenditures
had been too lavish lor pecuniary suc?
cess, and after about five brilliant so?
cial seasons at the Spa, the company
found themselves well nigh insolvent,
and the property was bought by Mr.
Morph and his nephew, Mr. John C.
Zimmerman. The lat Uer gentleman
was for yeats the popular and success?
ful proprietor of Glenn's Spring Ile
sold it in 1853: since then it has
changed hands several time, until it
was bought by the present owners
These gentlemen have shown no small
amount of energy ami ability in the
management of the place, and, since
Glenn's Spring has fallen into their
hands, have done much to restore it
to its old standard as a popular and
pleasant summer resort. Belonging
themselves to an old an influential
family, first rate peuple are naturally
attracted to a health resort over which
they preside. Their genntlemanly
demeanor and honorable dealings
compel the respect of all who Sojourn
under their roof. In hurrying over
the outlines of the history of our Spa,
we have omitted individual sketches,
without which the story of the old
watering place would be incomplete.
There were ft om the (?pening sea?
son of ISoi up to the war in i860,
many men, frequenters of Glenn's
Spring, who made . the history of
South Cand?na. It? ante bellum days
the Constitution of the State did not
allow its Chief Executive during his
term of office to leave the State, and
the Governor was glad to fix for sev?
eral weeks each summer, and often
for the whole season, his headquarters ,
at Glenn's Spring. Judges, United
States Senators and Representatives,
congregated lhere, and some import?
ant decisions of the Supreme Court
were written nut in its precincts, and
more than one State paper of import?
ance drafted in the shadow tf its
walls
Slowly walking np and down the
campus, in the times of which we
speak, summer after summer, was to
he seen the tall, wasted form of Chan?
cellor Harper, the beautiful integrity
of whose private life adorned the office
which he filled Every one recog?
nized Judge Harper as a truly great
man. His legal opinions were quoted
in English and European courts ; and
it was his strong intellect that coined
from the inalienable sovereignty of
the States, the doctrine of the right of
secession. Calhoun grasped the idea,
and became the earnest apostle of the
new political creed, thereby forfeiting
all hope of national honors.
Col. William C Preston, the silver
tongued orator, was a brother-in-law
of Jiarpers's and always a strong
Union man. After leaving the United j
States Senate he was made President
or the South Carolina College. Ile j
always spent a part of his sammers at j
Glenn's Spring He used to say. that i
in spite of his oartialitv lor his native I
Virginia, he was forced to admit that i
... i
no waters of the Old Dominion built |
up his broken down nerve force as
the water of Glenn's Spring.
Judges Buller, Huger, Cheves, De
Saussuie, the Johnsons, both Chan?
cellor and Judge, Elmore, Seabrook,
Ll ay nc, Laborde, Bart? well, Picketts,
O'Neale. men of all shades of thought
and profession, came to di ink and be j
healed. "Ah ? gentlemen ! " said Col. |
Preston "Think you not Ponce de j
Leon made a mistake in his bearings;
had he come up higher he might have
found here the water for which he
si niched ? "
It was in 1S4? that the survivors o'
the Palmetto Regiment, heroes of
.Monterey ami Resaca dc la Palma,
came to recruit from wounds ami the
? fleets of the hardships of the Mexican i
War. Gladden, Eves, Cary, Styles,
Brooks and others, carried nfl" the ;

Cel. Brooks used to tell a good

Mrs. Farnandis, 'Aunt Sally.'as bhe
was lung called, was one of the land?
marks of Glenn's ?pring. The first
summer the hotel was opened she was
there the whole season, and came un?
failingly every year afterward until
the opening of our ci vii war. Soon
after her marriage, whilst still a
young, pretty woman, she had a fall,
from which she received internal in
juries which never healed Glenn's
Spring water, whilst it could not cure
made her very much mr?re comfort?
able. Warm hearted and generous
uatured, entering into the joys and
sorrows of all around, untiring in
kindness, cheerful in affliction, she
was for years the central figure at the
watering place.
No one of the therapeutic effects of
the water is more valuable than the
tonic properties, that enable the
steady drinker of alcoholic liquors to
give up Iiis accustomed stimulant
without letting down his nervous sys?
tem. Men wb< se condition, when
away from the effects of the water,
seems to demand the moderate use of
stimulants, can, while drinking the
Glenn's Spring water, not feel at all
tiie need of their toddy. It is said
that the economy of the universe sup?
plies for every curse a blessing; for
eveiy poison an antidote. It is cer?
tain that any man who desires to quit
the habitual use of stimulants may do
so by spending a summer at Glenn's
Spring, and drinking freely of the
mineral water.
There is quite a little village around
the Spring. Soon after the hotel was
built in 183$, some of the stock?
holders built summer houses. A store
and post-office were opened, some,
persons who liked the climate tor j
summer, concluded lo become penna- j
neut residents. A male academy was ?
opened, and year after year there
have been now and then additions. .
lu 1S50 an Episcopal church was.
built, and it is a great pleasure to
church folks to find a pretty little con

Within the the last few years the
Presbyterians, too, have built a neat
house of Wwiship. which is regularly?
supplied with preaching, lu the old
days, before Mies? places of player
were built, visiting clergymen often
preached in the hotel pallor; it was
there that Dr. Thoruwell, when quite!
a young man, preached for the first
time his celebrated sermon on "The

of the caudle-stick in one of his fervid

"Mary" was a beautiful blonde, the

martyr of the Confederate war. Ile
died from illness incurred in camp
life, the first Southern soldier who
lost his life. Ile and "Marv" belong
to the land of shadows.
The season of 1SG0 was the most
brilliant that Glenn's Spring ever
knew. There was at one time that
summer, tabernacled in hotel cot?
tages and private houses, a thousand
visitors. Driving, games and dancing
gave pastime to pleasure seekers, as
freely as the si ping ran water for the
invalids. Little recked the young
and gay how many would fall in bat?
tle ; how soon sorrow and suspense
was to throw a pall over the bright
panorama.
Si:i3e the war, in spite of the fact
that Glenn's Spring is not on a rail?
road, and ha9 only a country market
to rely upon, the old resort has still a
good patronage.
A new feature of the place is the
"Bottling House." This is estab?
lished at the spring. The dem.tod
for the water is steadily increasing,
and it is shipped in cases of one and
two dozen quart bottles, east and
west The water is also kept on
draught in many of the principal
Southern cities.
One word in conclusion, to those
who drink Glenn's Spring water:
"Be temperate in all thing?;," may ap
' ply even to water drinking. Take
j one or more tumblersfull before break?
fast, not more. After breakfast, if
j you are able, go the spring, sit lu the
! pavilion, and drink as much as you
conveniently can. During tile after?
noon and night drink moderately of
the water. At the end of three weeks
for a few days, drink less, then re?
sume full rations. This advice is
based on the observation of years, by
a medical man of the first order of
talent 7 and it is confirmed by two
practitioners of Spartanburg, who
have been familiar, with the effects of
the water fi om boyhood, and have for
yea-s watched its therapeutic action
from a scientific standpoint.
Glenn Springs numbers its
patrons by the hundred in
every County in this State,
and the pictures herewith
presented will be familiar to
many of our readers who have
experienced the pleasures of
a visit tu this popular resort,
so charmingly portrayed by
Mrs. Means. Those contem?
plating a trip for health or
pleasure, during the coming
summer, should not fail to
arrange fer a part (d'the time
at Glenn Springs, especially
if they have not been there
before.
