The names of the many springs in this picturesque region of the Ozark Mountains often survive, even if they become mere trickles or disappear completely. Crescent Spring, now dry, was once one of the most popular sources on Spring Street, so much so that it was given a sheltering gazebo. The gazebo is a visual delight with its graceful flared copper-covered roof, its two tiers separated by a band of narrow circular windows, and wooden X-trusses connecting the six wood posts. Landscaped areas surround the gazebo, and stone steps on its north side lead up the hillside to the Crescent Hotel (CR14).
