If you enjoy Alley Spring near Eminence or Big Spring in Van Buren, then you'll need to see this one too.

Hi The train museum was very interesting but I suspect has limited hours. The Visitor center as well. However the spring pumps out millions of gallons regardless of work schedules and the old RR cars can be seen from the... More
