Hi!I found an old photo of the Resort online after seeing this mention: "The Allens were the first operators of a resort 1843-1848 at "The Sulphur Springs", site of the old Patrick Springs Hotel. (Patrick Co. VA Heritage Book, p. 385)"I imagine it's long gone. No one locally seems to know which ones in the family operated it.That tract of land was called the "Spring Tract" in one of the documents of Anderson Allen.I'd love to know if they discoved the medicinal properties of the water or if the family sold it as says "operated by the Allens" and doesn't say if they still owned the land.
I have seven children listed for Martha A and David R; four with spouses. An interesting family ! Debps will send along the photo
