Waukesha Spring City

Show your love of Waukesha by paying homage to the great Bethesda springhouse that once graced this fine city. Some history: The rise and decline of Waukesha as "the spring city," is material for an opera. We can start with the summer of 1868 when, to settle an estate, from New York came Col. Richard Dunbar, a railroad contractor who found himself afflicted with diabetes. Driving around Waukesha with his wife's sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Carney, the colonel asked where he could get a good drink of water. "There are several fine springs in the pasture over there," said Mrs. Carney. Col. Dunbar drank one cup of water, drew another and another. Every day he continued to quaff the refreshing water, feeling like a new and better man. Returned to New York, he sank back into his former lassitude. "There must have been some powerful curative agency in that Waukesha spring water," he said. Result, he returned to Waukesha, bought the 40 acre tract where the springs were, chased off the cattle and, remembering his Sunday school days, named the spring "Bethesda" after the Jerusalem spring where an angel troubled the waters, which then took on curative powers. Now in first rate health, Col. Dunbar began the development of the Bethesda spring. He built a handsome family home; Dunbar av. was laid out; the spring itself was covered with a pavilion and rustic benches were placed in the park grounds. The Milwaukee Daily News said in 1872, "The use of Bethesda water is no longer an experiment. No one can converse with a tithe of the hundreds now in Waukesha without being convinced of the spring water's miraculous powers."
