Welcome to the picturesque village of Boiling Springs. Beautiful scenery, fly fishing, the oldest public pool in Cumberland County, quaint Bed & Breakfasts, plus theatre and local events. Founded in 1845*, but settled prior to 1737, Boiling Springs is a village that surrounds the Children’s Lake, right on the Appalachian Trail. The Memorial Clock Tower, erected in 1956 and the Boiling Springs (Grist) Mill, on record as early as 1785, are two landmarks in the village. The mill is one of, if not the most photographed building in the village.
Boiling Springs was also a site for the underground railroad before the civil war, a tourist destination in the early 1900′s, a stop along the Appalachian Trail. Now a location for small shops, art galleries, cafe’s and restaurants, recreation and relaxation. Boiling Springs is a fantastic community of individuals that are inspired to create that small town feel and share it with anyone who visits.
The village of Boiling Springs is located in South Middleton Township (township population 15,000 projected for 2010, I don’t have statistics for the village population). The population of Cumberland County is approximately 215,000 (est 2000)
If you are around in the summertime, be sure to stop by the Boiling Springs Pool and say hello. My name is Tom and I run this site and the pool for the community.
