History of Wootan Wells

This ghost spa/resort is featured in Ghost Towns of Robertson County at Wootan Wells.  Wootan Wells' Texas Historic Marker reads:  "Famous early health spa and resort. First well was dug 1878 by landowner Francis Wootan. Water tasted good, but turned dishes yellow and clothes red. Even so, it seemed to possess amazing curative properties. Wootan soon built a hotel and in 1879 a resort town made its debut. He formed a promotion company with T. W. Wade and more hotels, a bottling works, dance pavilion, and school sprang up. Leading socialites came from miles to 'take the waters'. Disaster struck in 1915 when fire swept the town. In 1921 the last buildings also burned."   Directions:  Intersection of Hwy. 6 & FM 1373, 2.5 miles west of Bremond.
