Built-in 1879 as a tourism attraction adjacent to the Round Knob Hotel, ,Andrews Geyser was an eye-catching site for visitors reaching Old Fort by train. The gravity-fed fountain, "geyser" was named to honor the vice-president of the Western North Carolina Railroad, Alexander Boyd Andrews, and is situated on the banks of Mill Creek, a designated trout stream between the upper railroad bridge and the U.S. Highway 70 bridge. You will find several historical markers including one honoring lives lost during the railroad construction and one of two N.C. Civil War Trail Markers.

The property is owned and maintained by the Town of Old Fort.
