The story of Chick Springs in Taylors, SC, is rooted in the nineteenth century. In 1840 Dr. Burwell Chick opened a resort at the site of mineral springs and built a hotel and cottages for summer guests. In the following hundred years, various summer resorts, as well as a military academy and a sanitarium, were established and then failed. The Taylors Garden Club published this book to remind visitors of the history behind the water that still is there. Pub date: 1977.
