Village of Boiling Springs PA

Boiling Springs TavernBoiling Springs PA is a census designated place located at the intersection of Route 174 and Route 2003 in Cumberland County Pennsylvania. Boiling Springs is about 2 miles south east of Carlisle PA.

Boiling Springs was named for the naturally ocurring artesian well springs located in and around the town. The natural springs produce a flow of about 22 million gallons of water per day from as many as 30 different sources around the town of Boiling Springs. The temperature of the water has no bearing on the name, but rather the way the water boils up from the ground. The most prominent of the natural springs, called the Bubble, is located directly behind the Boiling Springs Tavern.

Initially settled by Europeans in the early 1700's the village of Boiling Springs would begin to expand with the creation of what is today a popular recreational feature of the town. Partially damming the spring waters during the 1750's residents of Boiling Springs created the seven acre lake today known as Children's Lake. This lake is a man made creation initially used to power grist mills and iron making production during the late 1700's and early 1800's. Using the waters the Carlisle Iron Works began production from Boiling Springs in the 1760's and a grist mill was built at the end of the lake in 1762.

Childrens Lake in Boiling Springs PAMany of the buildings near Childrens lake date to this period, although some have been converted for more modern uses. Historic buildings remain in Boiling Springs all around Childrens Lake. Among the remaining buildings visitors will see the original iron forge and iron masters mansion built in 1795.
