Sometimes you can live in an area for your whole life and not know as much about that area as you thought. Charlotte Hall, Maryland doesn't seem to be a place you would expect to find a random, nice, somewhat scenic spot that many locals are unfamiliar
with. But here we are!
Ye Cool Springs are natural springs in Charlotte Hall, Md., and the site of the first hospital in Maryland — constructed in the early 1700s. 1700 — before our country was
a country. Once
believed to have “healing powers,” the springs were a popular destination for colonists plagued with illness and disease, especially considering they’d left their healthcare facilities in England. Ye Coole Springs provided clean, natural drinking
water for locals and today, in 2010, still bubble up with fluid.
