Under Lock and Key by Laurie Search

Alum Rock Park, San Jose, CA

Sitting on a natural mineral spring, this park actually used to be a spa where people would come from all over the world. Five experts were supposedly hired to test the water, and all said that it had healing properties. There are a lot of old stone remains, but very few signs telling what everything was. I did read that there were many underground tunnels throughout the property, and it looks like that’s what this was….

    Don’t fancy going in there Laurie. Bet it’s real spooky and full of huge spiders now. You are teaching me some history of the U.S. Cheers.Tony.

  • No, I don’t fancy going in there, either, my friend!!! :))) Thank you so very much!!!! :)))
