Tuscaloosa Springs (also Wyser's Bluff). Situated on the Trinity, ten miles north of Huntsville and thirty miles south of Crockett. On his 1849 map De Cordova noted its location at the mouth of Mill Creek. In 1858 a stage stop with accommodations operated at these red, black, and white sulphur springs. The 1860 Census reported G.A. Wyser as hotelkeeper. In 1866 the San Antonio Daily Herald noted it as a "very strong sulphur spring." The springs evidently operated until 1870, as Johnson noted it on his map. The 1886 USGS Bulletin 32 said that locals used this sulphureted spring. . . . from Taking the waters in Texas: springs, spas, and fountains of youth by Janet Valenza. Google Books.
