|An intensive-level, comprehensive survey or re-survey was conducted for forty resources associated with the mineral water history of Excelsior Springs. Both field survey and archival research was used to obtain data on the individual properties. As an accurate and complete list of all of the mineral water resources did not exist, it was first necessary to conduct archival research in order to identify their locations.
The survey was prepared for the City of Excelsior Springs by Deon Wolfenbarger, Three Gables Preservation, pictured at right, seeking remains of the Soterian Spring.
