Visitor Tips and News About God's Acre Healing Springs
Today I was able to travel to God's Acre Healing Springs with my 14 year old son. It was a wonderful experience to watch him drink from the spring. He has a mechanical mitral valve and a pacemaker.
"Mama, this is good water from God!" -- Tajdric[Jennifer Gilmore, 03/25/2012]
My wife and I live in Mt. Pleasant, SC and heard about the Springs a couple weeks ago. Being unadventurous, we decided to take the 117 mile trip, after stopping and buying 15 one gallon jugs. Once there, we knew we were in for a treat. So serene and peaceful, with water constantly flowing from the pipes installed for easy filling. The first thing we did was taste the water, and wow! Best water I have ever put in my mouth. No taste like I expected there to be, and so refreshing! We talked to locals and others that had driven just as far as we did, even farther! We drink it every day, and when it's gone, we are going back for more!
Nice Amish country store 100 yards down the road that's a must to stop into. Nice owners, very friendly.[Anthony Wescott, 02/16/2011]
Very nicely maintained site that has attraction info signs, handicapped parking, sidewalks, etc. Just walk up and fill up your jugs. People you meet here are very friendly and have great stories about how the water cured various ailments over the years. Mennonite restaurant and Duke's BBQ are both very close by. Great day trip![J.

God's Acre Healing Springs was a nice drive through the back country of South Carolina. The site does give you the feeling that you are in a holy, if not sacred, area. The Healing Spring is a quiet little stream with 3 artesian wells in front of it. When I arrived, a few people were filling their water supply pitchers. As I was leaving, it appeared that the entire town of Blackville was coming to get their daily supply of Godly water.
The only downside was the large amount of flies that have made the Healing Springs their home.[Grant, 11/17/2010]
