Namesake

The area became known as Boiling Springs because of a small spring in its heart that, up until the land was commercially developed, actually appeared as if it were boiling and shot 6ft into the air. The spring is located at the corner of McMillin Boulevard and Highway 9 on the same lot as Bilo and Blockbuster. Once the land was developed and the Bilo shopping center was built, the springs ceased to boil. After the spring was cleaned up and dug out, a little park was built around it with benches and flags and a memorial. The spring has begun to boil again.
