Rock Enon Springs Resort was built up around a mineral water spring and was originally called Capper Springs after an early settler, John Capper. In 1856,William Marker bought the property and built a hotel to accommodate guests at the springs. During the mid-19th century, it became very popular as a place for people to heal various ailments by soaking in the spring's "medicine" waters.
