I am considering moving to the area and would like to find a small peice of rural property with a natural spring on it - clean drinkable water, of course. Are there natural springs in the area? Do you know of any small properties that might be be for sale?
(less than 5 acres) please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

In my experience, many of the lowland springs have dried up over the past 35-50 years due to overdevelopment. I know of some springs in Greene County but they are all on mountain land. Don't know anything about the immediate TRI area, but you'd probably have to be more rural than city. Try talking to some real old timers? And look at more rural, mountainous tracts... Sorry I couldn't help more.

I don't know of any available properties that have springs but off the top of my head, I can think of four springs in Sullivan Co. and three in Hawkins Co. that are on farmland or flat terrain. So, they do exist but it'll probably still be challenging to find what you're looking for.

There are still plenty in my neck of the woods, but we are on mountain land, just across the state line. Springs supply all the water in our home.
