Just a few miles south of Siler City off Old US 421 on Mount Vernon Springs Road are two natural springs pouring clean mineral waters named Health and Beauty. The peaceful area was once a famous health spa, Mt. Vernon Springs, and it attracted ailing people from far and wide. Local legend has it that the new name for the springs was suggested by John Washington, a descendent of George, who built a home near them for his health around that time. Today, the springs are still beautiful and free flowing. Many people still visit the springs on a regular basis and fill up jugs of water to take home with them. Access to the springs is free and they flow constantly. The springs are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The springs are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
