Boiling Spring was an early landmark, even before Dayton was founded in 1854. It is located near the center of Dayton and is about 45 feet wide with a quicksand bottom. It got its name from the sand bubbling/boiling constantly. It starts in one place, then stops and starts in another. People say the most activity is around noon; I think they say this because that is the best time to see the sand boiling, with the sun directly above it. The early settlers made many trips here to take the sand and use it to scour their floors. There is no water supplying the spring other than what is boiling out of the ground.
