Old Maid's Pool


category : Natural Attractions
The Old Maid's Pool, an ancient sinkhole long thought to be bottomless, is 125 yards in diameter apparently with neither inlet nor outlet. Its unfailing fresh water supply is believed to come from the underflow of the river nearby.

Indian legend says that the Great Spirit caused the earth to sink after two tribes fought all day. The visitors camped here, but during the night the campsite disappeared leaving only the water filled depression. According to local historians, it is a place of mystery, and Native Americans will not visit it. Off the Beaten Path, Patti DeLano and Cathy Johnson.
