Mineral Wells, Texas

The discovery of medicinal qualities in the waters made Mineral Wells nationally famous in late 19th to early 20th centuries. It was said that the waters of the Crazy Well (discovered in 1885) could cure mental illness and a long list of other maladies. Today, modern health seekers, conventioneers, retired persons, hunters and fishermen enjoy mild climate and the surrounding Palo Pinto Mountains. Several outfitters provide canoe rentals and trips on the nearby Brazos River. A walking tour encompasses the historic downtown area. Be sure to inquire about the Beneficial Animal Teaching Society's (B.A.T.S.) tours and field trips to see Bat World, a museum about bats, as well as guided field tours.
