Dickinson Spring, despite the name its actually an artesian well. So, bring a jug and enjoy a drink of cold, fresh water.
Historical sign reads:
Thomas Dixon had this well dug on his farm in 1916. It went dry during the drought in 1934. Minnesota Highway Department equipment struck the pipe while building Highway 55 in 1938. It started flowing again.
"The ghost town of Dickinson, which was located 1/4 mile east of here, was a station on the Soo line and had a population of 50 in 1915. It was named for pioneer settler Amos Dickinson on whose farm it was located."
This cache has been registered with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
