The Fountain of Youth

Most People Don’t Know There’s A Fountain Of Youth Hiding Deep In Pennsylvania’s WoodsTucked away in the woods of North Park near Wexford, Pennsylvania lies an attraction that relatively few know about: a Fountain of Youth. It borders on mythological, yet this small designated stone structure has become a landmark for photographers and explorers alike. Here’s more on this spring house structure and how you might find it:The Fountain of Youth is located in North Park, at 10127 Kummer Rd, Wexford, PA 15090.

The springhouse was constructed in the 1930s in the style of a Roman cavern, complete with an archway made of stone and, of course, the center disc which reads “Fountain of Youth.”

The structure is home to a spring, which until the 1950s was used as a local water source. Today, visitors will notice a warning sign that the water has not been treated.

Step inside to the cool, cave-like interior and on the back wall, you’ll notice the space where the pump was broken off after the water was considered unsafe.

You’ll then exit the space facing west, the direction that, according to local folklore, represents the struggles of middle age, the sacred feminine, and the power of water.

Whether or not you believe in the healing properties of this site (as the water itself is not safe to drink), there’s no denying its fascinating history and symbolism.

If you plan on visiting the Fountain of Youth, you’ll be in for a bit of a hike. Be sure to wear shoes that you can walk through the woods with.

The best way to access the Fountain of Youth springhouse is by parking along the small gravel pull-off and continuing along the path leading down to the creek.

    That was what I thought when they did it to the J6 arrests.

    Then the raid of Trump’s home

    Then there was the FBI raid of pro-life activists Mr. Houck

    Then it got closer to home for me with South Dakota Senate violating Julie Frye-Mueller’s constitutional rights. With what they did to her for 4 (?)days, they actually did to all the people in her district that she represented. Julie still has not gotten her committee seats back which is a HUGE part of South Dakota’s lawmaking process. Hey Julie is not only a friend but the Senator for my district.

    Hang on guys for if they can get away with all of these raids and arrests, when will they come after one of us, especially if they arrest Trump.

    Interesting that there appears to be arrest warrants for the President of Russia and now for the duly elected but junta-ousted President of the United States. Should we be surprised if there will also soon be arrest warrants for Bolsonaro of Brazil and Modi of India? If that happens world-wide coup happening? Just my imagination, but what if???
