Used as early as the American Revolution, this site became a "Summer Watering Place" in 1835. Low Country aristocrats like Governor David Johnson were attracted here by the climate and therapeutic waters. A post office was here from 1836 to 1879. Limestone College was established in 1845 as the Limestone Springs Female High School.
