Radium Springs - A Natural Wonder!

For a wonderful video presentation, featuring Morgan Murphy (deceased) and Lamar Clifton

The largest natural springs in Georgia are found just outside of Albany. The waters, which are consistently 68 degrees, contain traces of radium, and the site was dubbed Radium Springs. A casino was built overlooking the springs in the 1920s, and the area experienced a tourism heyday as a spa and resort. Flooding of the Flint River in 1994 and 1998 severely damaged the casino, and it was ultimately demolished in 2003.
