Nicmar Water and York Springs PA a common history built on hard water…
York Springs PA, not to be confused with York Pennsylvania, the 14th largest city in Pennsylvania, is a small borough in Adams County with a population of 833 (2010 US Census).
York “Sulphur” Springs was the very first resort of its kind in Adams County back in the 1700’s, where privileged urbanites from Philadelphia and Baltimore came to vacation by horse drawn carriage and stage coach during the milder Eastern Seaboard summers.
Dancing, croquet, bowling, and drinking from the well-known springs were the leisure activity for most of the visitors in an era where water filtration was nothing more than futuristic science fiction. The water in fact was very unpalatable if not downright undrinkable, but believed to be highly medicinal in value. According to records of the time it contained a high concentration cocktail of minerals including Epsom salts, gypsum and common salt and of course what it was famous for…sulfur. None of these elements ideal for household consumption.
