A few days ago I wrote a blog about the Mayfair Hotel in Searcy Arkansas and how it was very near a park that had healing waters.
This old postcard shows that park at about that era, I'd think. The spring was covered with this circular pavilion or gazebo and it was within easy walking distance to the hotel. I visualize ladies in their long skirts parading arm in arm from the hotel to this little park.
The park now contains playground equipment and a much bigger pavilion as the next photo shows. But it also still contains the small pavilion too.
The library is still located in Spring Park and shows in the background of this photo. When I first came to Searcy, however, the library looked like this. It would be interesting if someday the city decided to reopen the springs!
