    Advisory: This Spring is frozen solid and does not flow during the winter…

    I remember this resturant when I was a kid my parents would always take me up there and we would bring our own bottle to fill them up with the water it was so good and natural

    Every other summer or so, my family would stay at the Iron Kettle Motel and we always took our thermos and filled up at the Iron Kettle Spring. The Iron Kettle restaurant was our favorite breakfast spot, and I remember when I was a bit older it had turned into a candy store, but I’m not sure what it is now. Good memories!

    I grew up next door to the Iron Kettle Restaurant, 60s -70s. The restaurant was used as a Mennonite church for awhile a few years ago but I believe it’s empty now. I remember the kettle well. The hotel is still across the street.

    You would think that this very public spring would have already been tested for PFOA.

    This business is now Eternal Spring Hydroponics 🙂 Nice name! The plants inside drink from the spring too.

    If you need a TDS/pH/temp meter, stop inside and pick one up.
