Bennett Spring Tinted Postcards


     Bennett Spring State Park, known in its early years as the town of Brice, Missouri, is located 12 miles west of Lebanon.  This is where Harold Bell Wright, soon to be the nation's top-selling novelist, relaxed and fished during the years (1905-1907) he served as pastor of the Lebanon, Missouri Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  Bennett Spring plays an important role in Wright's book, The Calling of Dan Matthews.  I have included below several tinted and chrome cards of  Bennett Spring.  Click here to see Real Photo Cards of Bennett Spring.  Bennett is often spelled without the second "t," and Spring is often spelled with a final "s."  Bennett Spring produces about 100 million gallons of water each day.  The river that flows from the spring is a tributary to the Niangua River.
