A thriving summer hotspot for South Carolinians during the 1800s, Glenn Springs once boasted an inn and spa where travelers could come to find rest and healing from various sickness and disease. The healing waters, dubbed "Nature's Formula," were even shipped across the country in glass bottles via the trains that ran through the area!
