This farm was once a popular European resort. In the mid-1800's, Capon Springs became known as a place to bring sick people in search of health through rest and recreation.
Today, the healing powers of these springs have not been forgotten; they are still enjoyed by thousands each year who come for relaxation and renewal. Located about 140 miles from Washington, DC on U.S. Route 340 near Thomas (59 miles northeast of Charleston), the area offers numerous activities including golfing and fishing in addition to therapeutic bathing experiences.
The Capon Springs & Farms is always filled with lots of fun things to do. It has a Golf Course, fishing area, and the history museum.
It also offers Healing Mineral Water Baths. The healing waters are believed by many to be therapeutic in nature for numerous ailments. They are noted for their ability to help with PMS symptoms and menstrual disorders (including pain), osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint or muscle aches, pains, stiffness as well as other problems relating to sore muscles and soft connective tissues. Soaking in the bath is often recommended by doctors as an excellent way to improve circulation to the back and joints while relaxing muscles at the same time. The minerals help cleanse skin pores while reducing stress hormones and increasing endorphin levels. The baths are also said to relieve stress and enhance mood.
