Born in Eagle Lake in 1938 and moved to Bartow in 1943 until 1949 I spent many happy days swimming at Kissengen Springs in 1946 through 1949. Me and friends would rife our bicycles from Bartow and swim. I remember still today how cold the water was. I remember one very hot day I arrived at the spring and I ran out to the end of the dock and jumped in. I thought I would perish before I could get out it was so cold. I remember the hundreds of fish in the spring and used to walk down the overflow creek towards Peace River.
