Several locations in Tennessee were known for their mineral springs, popular in the late 19th Century for improving individuals’ health. Tate Springs, located near Bean Station in Grainger County, was one of this area’s most-famous resorts. Folks flocked to Hawkins County to visit the Galbraith Springs resort, located near Mooresburg.
