The swimming pool at Capon Springs & Farms, West Virginia, is one of six entries vying for the title of “best retreat center pool in America.”
The contest is hosted by Retreat Central.
According to the contest page, the family-friendly spring-fed pool is one of the oldest preserved 19th century flow-through swimming experiences in the country. Filled entirely with healing spring water, over a century of guests have testified to its beneficial properties. Even its biweekly draining is a much anticipated event known as “walk on the bottom.”
