The Hays' Spring
lehem to Mauch Chunk, Pa., Weaversville, Pa., many times, hence it also is mentioned as the Franklin Spring.
ampton County, was made in Allen Township on the banks of the Hokendauqua and Catasauqua band of Scotch Irish in 1728. The centre of this settlement was Weaversville, Pa. Tradition has it that when the first settlers arrived one of them upon an Indian squaw said:-"give me a gourd and I'll fetch you some ;" and at that she disappeared and returned with the gourd full of cool, sparkling water. This led to the discovery of a fine spring, the finding of which led them to select the place for their future home. This wonderful spring is producing the same excellent water today as that of 200 years ago in a Cement Region where good springs are diverted from their course because of blasting. It is cemented up in concrete form and covered over for its preservation. The water is pumped through a pipe which passes under the stream to the upper floors of the hotel in the rear and also into a large house near-by. The present owner is Mr. David J. Snyder.
Hays, Sr., lived in at Weaversville was purchased from Mrs. Mary Walker King, It is no longer standing. It is replaced by a hotel. But the mill he built in I790 is still there, and has the date in plain sight.
