Spring Stevens Fish Hatchery

Construction of the Spring Stevens Fish Hatchery was completed during 1936, on a site just south of the Lancaster County town of Heath Springs. The Federal government allowed $24,100 in cash and labor donations for the construction on property which was provided by Colonels Elliott White Springs and John T. Stevens. Construction was accomplished through the Works Projects Administration (WPA) with major renovations occurring during the mid-1970s.
