The city’s Indian Spring, located next to the Civic Building in the town center, was once believed to have healing powers. The Cherokee Indians, who lived in the nearby hills, would send messengers to Indian Spring to bring back the medicinal waters to sustain the health of the ill. Indian Spring was also the sole source of water for some locals until the 1960s.
By 1968, the city had established its water, electricity and natural gas supply. Since then, Mountain Park has grown slowly as new families recognize the joy of living in this quiet, wooded community. And although Mountain Park is now more than the clustering of summer homes it once was, it still retains that summer vacation atmosphere.
