The Big Spring Creek originates -- seeps out from some rocks--- and travels 7 miles to the Conodoguinet Creek. It is a beautiful shallow creek famous for trout fishing, ( One British General brought a part of his army here some 300 years ago--to guard him from the (American) indians while he fished.) AT this point the creek spreads out into a small lake and then tumbles over a man made waterfall-- some thru a water wheel formerly used to grind grain.
As you can see, there are some lovely homes along the lake--- but the mail man will only drive so far to deliver. Thus-- and typical--- a rack of mail boxes!
