The History of Shatley Springs:

  • Around 1890, Mr. Martin Shatley stumbled upon the spring and stopped to cool off, running his hands under the spring and splashing his face with the water.
  • Mr. Shatley had suffered from a skin disease for years, and a few hours after he’d been at the spring, he noticed that the disease was seemingly clearing up.
  • As with most small towns, news of the healing spring spread quickly and people from all over began visiting.
  • Once people started using the water from the spring, many stories of renewed health began spreading, and still are today.
  • The water at the spring flows from Little Phoenix Mountain in Ashe County, and to this day is considered to be one of the purest springs in the world.
