Historic Photos
Summit Springs Battleground


Photo courtesy of William Saul, whose family settled in 5N 51W.

These photos were all taken at the site of Battle Ground Springs, now called Summit Springs although the actual spring and a dam site are unseen in the background and now fenced off - no trespassing. A bird's eye view of the site can be checked using Google Earth. These photos were  taken in June 2010 an unusually well-watered time; hence the green!
