"And gentle winds and waters near, make music to the lonely ear." -- Byron
With an abundance of natural artesian wells, waterfalls, wetlands, and Lake Superior, Cornucopia is water rich.
The cold, clear water bubbling from this artesian well has its source in ancient groundwater flowing deep beneath the Bayfield Peninsula.
As the groundwater squeezes between layers of porous and solid rock, it flows slowly under great pressure. Wherever this is a crack through the rock layers or where the aquifer is tapped, groundwater erupts at the surface creating an artesian well.
Artesian wells have provided a reliable supply of clean water for Cornucopia since the early 1900s. These natural treasures have been an important source of the community's development and continue to draw people seeking Cornucopia's famous artesian water. 
Take a taste. Sit a spell. This water is as pure as the glaciers that once covered this land.
The marker is located at the Cornucopia Artesian Well and is accessible from southbound Wisconsin Highway 13, south of its intersection with West Spirit Point Road / Siskwit Falls Road, at or near 22545 State Highway 13, Cornucopia, Wisconsin 54827.

One of Wisconsin's most beautiful beaches! I love this place!!
