PITCHER – As a past resident of the community of North Pitcher and a lover of history, I felt readers might take interest in the following:
Pitcher Springs is located in the Township of Pitcher on a tiny brook that flows into the Otselic River. If one travels on Route 26 there is a small road between Pitcher and North Pitcher that leads to a place with an interesting past.
Once thought a cure for many diseases and infirmities, sulfur water became the most sought after medicinal remedy of the age. At one time Pitcher Springs was among the most popular locations to obtain the miraculous attributes of the infamous sulfur baths and treatments. Therefore, Pitcher Springs became very prosperous.
