The oldest flowing well in Cedar Springs will be rededicated on Friday, October 2, 2009 at 2:00 p.m.
The well sits on property behind the fire barn on Maple Street, which is thought to be the property where the first residents in Cedar Springs settled, when it was all still woodland.
The well was temporarily capped a year ago, when the old foundry was torn down, so that the well wouldn’t become tainted.
The casing on the well has been inspected, and new stone now surrounds it, thanks to volunteers. The well cannot be used for drinking, however. The city is also seeking donations to make it into a fountain.
