In the western section of the county lies the Love Springs Community which acquired its name from Civil War Captain W.P. Love. The springs however go back to the days of the Indians who believed them to have vast healing powers. The white man on moving into the area also used the waters to bathe away such varied nuisances as irritation from poison oak and ivy, insect bites and other maladies of the skin. In yet a later time one Clint Smith and his family operated a swimming pool and picnic area that citizens from far and wide came to enjoy.
