Just a minute down the road from me in Adams county resided a Hotel
that originated in 1876. Its name was The Cold Springs Hotel. This hotel
stood 4 stories high and as the story claims was used during and just after
the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg. People used this hotel as well
as a place to come and bask in the bubbling springs that are still there
The hotel had burnt to the ground and everything that stood fell
straight to the basement. Now the Boro of Waynesboro owns the property it
resides on and all that is merely left is stone foundation and the bubbling
pond. It has a game fence around the perimeter, as the forestry dept. of

the outside perimeter is state ground and can be detected. This area holds
a lot of history that is merely unknown by most.

soldiers had discarded cannons on the way back from the war. Still hidden in
the woods of this road to this day? Another area of possible interest for
