Spring into history with Simpson Spring! Long before the first European colonists arrived in the New World, there was a tribe that flourished in the southeast area of Boston in the 16th and 17th centuries. This tribe – the Assowompset Indians, used this natural bubbling spring as their very own water source.
The colonists believed the spring had medicinal powers (Pretty amazing if it really did!) and so in 1964, eagerly followed these Native Americans to the spring. One of the settlers built his home near the spring, which over the centuries slowly became to belong to a local blacksmith – and yep, his name was Simpson! And so the name was born!
Today, Simpson Spring is one of the oldest independent water bottling plants in the entire country. They even make fun, flavoured waters and this is where YOU come in. Simpson Spring offer complimentary tours of the historic museum!
Kids can learn all about where the company get their water front, and there are even sweet Alpanas to visit. Cute! There is the fun Spring Water Challenge (you will find out when you get there!) and on Saturdays there is a fun marketplace.
It’s a great trip into history for the kids. Simpson Spring has been bottling water since 1878, and there are artifacts and remnants from the factory’s heyday as a soda company way back in the 1930s and 1940s.
Plus it’s a great way to show kids why they should drink lots of water everyday to stay healthy (and they can see the spring itself and tell all their friends about it)
My drink is water bright, from the crystal spring!
