In the early 1840’s, Mineral Springs Park was donated to the town of Iuka by David Hubbard. Located on old Hwy 72E, the park is home to gazebos, a Log Cabin, playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, walking track, picnic tables and peaceful beauty. There is a wonderful article in The Southern Ezine about Mineral Springs Park.
