Fairy, Druid Mounds at a Natural Spring Marks the Headwaters of the Elkhart River in Indiana

Fairy Springs in Noble County, Indiana

Sanctuaries were erected at these springs by grateful worshippers, and at some of them festivals were held, or they were the resort of pilgrims. As sources of fertility they had a place in the ritual of the great festivals, and sacred wells were visited on Midsummer day, when also the river-gods claimed their human victims. 

Two mounds flank each side of this natural spring located at the headwaters of the Elkhart River in Noble County, Indiana.
