Dwightwood Springs is named after the son of Edwin O. Wood of Flint, MI. In 1909 he donated money in memory on his late son Dwight Hulbert Wood. This spring originates from a spring within the bedrock of the Mackinac Island limestone. Limestone is composed largely of calcium calcite. Limestone is a sedimentary rock which means it was formed by different particles being compacted or compressed. The sediment is then compressed and forms into layers known as beds or strata.

 

In the early years this springs quenched the thirst of many of the island’s visitors. However, using current water quality standards, it is not recommended to drink this water as it is unsafe to drink.

TDS readings unclear, temperature 45 degrees
