Greenbrier County: 8.5 m NW of Alderson, WV

A monumental Greek pavillion, standing alone in a level pasture, is all that remains of the splendor of one of the region's most-famous mineral springs.

The Blue Sulphur Spring, in western Greenbrier County near Alderson, West Virginia, still bubbles beneath the pavillion and provides the highest sulfer content of any of the region's mineral springs. The resort that surrounded the pavillion was burned by Federal forces in 1864.
