God’s Acre Healing Springs

God’s Acre Healing Springs are located in Blackville, South Carolina – roughly two hours from Charleston and three hours from Myrtle Beach. You are unable swim in God’s Acre Healing Springs because the water is not deep. In fact, even wading in the water would be tough. The Healing Springs are accessible to those with disabilities. The cool, fresh water springs are well known and loved. At times, a line forms to reach the spigots!

God’s Acre Healing Springs are located behind Healing Springs Baptist Church in Blackville on land that has the unusual distinction of being deeded to God. Their mineral waters flow from nearby artesian wells, and the springs have been a source of folklore spanning centuries. Native Americans who lived near this site believed the waters were sacred because of their healing properties.

Stories of the springs’ healing power were perpetuated during the American Revolution. Legend says four British soldiers were severely wounded in a nearby battle at Windy Hill Creek. They, along with two men ordered to bury them when they died, were rescued by Native Americans, who took them to the springs. Six months later, all of the soldiers returned to their post in Charleston, crediting the springs’ water with their miraculous recovery.

Native Americans are said to have sold the springs to a trader named Nathaniel Walker for corn. Walker was also the founder of the adjacent church, which originally was known as Edisto Church after the South Edisto River. The land passed through many hands before it was eventually purchased by Lute Boylston. In 1944, Mr. Boyston decided to deed the land to God so that everyone could enjoy the spring’s healing powers.

Today, South Carolinians continue to hold the site sacred, and many people – especially those who are sick – travel hours to collect water from its humble spigot. The springs are accessible via a paved sidewalk and ramp which takes you directly to the water source, making it completely handicap accessible.

Reflections on God’s Acre Healing Springs

Contributor Teri Leigh Teed shares her experiences visiting God’s Acre Healing Springs:

“Probably the only property in the country that is deeded to God, Healing Springs is a natural artesian spring that is visited daily for its cool, crystal clear, best tasting waters. Native Americans claimed that the waters had healing properties, hence the name. During the Revolutionary War, wounded British soldiers were left to die. They were nursed back to health with the help of the waters and the Native Americans. The soldiers were eventually healthy enough to rejoin their regiment in the Charleston area. Today, Healing Springs still attracts visitors locally and regionally to partake of the delicious waters, and enjoy the soothing shade of the trees surrounding the springs on the edge of the forest and swamp.

“I have visited this site on many occasions since I first had a picnic here with my mom and brother in July 2005. The renowned Miller’s Bread Basket restaurant is three miles south in Blackville and well worth the drive!”

I’m fascinated by this holy place and would love to know more.

We brought home a few gallons of the healing water when we stayed in Columbia during the hurricane last year. We still have a few gallons we never opened; I was wondering how long they would be good for? Thank you.

I had a leg injury a few years ago and the doctors said I would not be able to walk the same again. My family took me to the springs, prayed over me, and rubbed the healing water on my leg. Since then I have been walking normally with no problems at all. I truly believe I was healed through prayer and blessing of the healing water!

Brenda Mitchell says:
November 20th, 2019 at 4:30 pm

I hope someone answered your request. This water is truly a healing blessing.

Rashid Patch says:

I live in Oakland, California. A dear friend is undergoing radiation treatment for lymphoma. Is there a way to have some of the healing water shipped to me in California? I’m on social security, but I’m can give a donation for shipping and costs, up to $40 0r $50. I know God can work miracles!

SC Picture Project says:

The answers are sure to be subjective, but many swear by it.

Jimmie says:
July 31st, 2019 at 9:08 am

Not to sound negative here, but has anybody been healed there? From the comments I know the water taste good but am wondering about actual healing.

Shaun says:
May 16th, 2019 at 9:35 am

I go once a month, almost like a pilgrimage. I bring my entire family and all.

George Fillingame says:

My Dad brought me to the springs when I was 12 years old and I brought my boys. I am 55 now and make a trip from Charleston to get this blessed water, the Lord’s presence is there you can feel it!

Susan Poston says:
May 6th, 2019 at 9:04 pm

I’m hoping my Sunday school class can take a trip there real soon. I really enjoyed the information.

Bambi Shelley says:
March 6th, 2019 at 4:28 pm

Hi I’m looking forward to visiting weekend after next. I want to taste the water and visit the restaurant. Also looking for a hotel that would be close. Not trusting Trip Advisor, could you recommend a safe hotel?

Wesley says:
February 8th, 2019 at 9:27 pm

I’m skeptical as well, but thinking about taking a trip.

Tony White says:
February 6th, 2019 at 1:22 pm

I was their last Saturday and I was sceptical at first, but I tried some and I was hooked. The water has a refreshing taste, it’s like pure thoughts and a empty mind… I must say it’s a peaceful place to visit. I love the locals who enlighten you on the history of God’s Acre healing spring water.

Jack Fanning says:
October 14th, 2018 at 12:29 pm

I visited the spring yesterday. The water is very good. Many artesian wells have an unpleasant taste. Not so with this water. My father grew up on a farm nearby at Goodland Creek.

Amy says:

I was baptized there.

May the Lord strengthen you to visit one day. I have heard good things about people being healed drinking this water. Today my ex-husband and I decided to visit this place for ourselves and golly gee the people were carrying water jugs, 5-gallon water jugs, big plastic containers, pickle jars, Hawaiian Punch containers full of water. so of course, we found a Dollar general and bought 5 liter one litre jugs of water poured it out and uset those too capture our God Acres Healing Spring Artesian water. God bless you as he strengthens you.

Can you get as much water as you want. I am planning to come and want to get water for me, my mother and daughter who all have diseases that would live to know that we could be cured. I know we have an awesome God!!

SC Picture Project says:
February 8th, 2019 at 11:20 pm

No there isn’t, you’re able to visit at any time and the water is free if you have your own jug or container.

Lakesha says:

Is there special permission needed to get the water and is there a charge

SCIWAY says:
July 7th, 2018 at 12:13 am

Hello San, we hope you’re able to get well enough to visit. The springs are open all year at all hours and are right beyond the parking area so there is a very minimal walk.

San Baek says:
July 6th, 2018 at 5:55 pm

Thank you.
I would like to go there. But my condition is not good. My wish is” to go there”. I want to drink this water. When can I go there? Thank you so much.

SCIWAY says:
June 26th, 2018 at 10:51 pm

We could certainly understand your hesitation! Last time we visited there was a concrete walking area to a certain point but far enough down to the first well area, it may be safer these days! Hope you enjoy your visit if you find yourself there again.

Vera says:
June 26th, 2018 at 12:07 pm

My stepdad was from the area. He took me and my brothers to visit the spring when we were young kids. I remember literally slipping on the mud and falling into the stream. The cool water was refreshing and tasted great. I don’t remember healing powers, just cool refreshing water. That had to be more than 50 years ago. I want to go back but I’m afraid a slip into the stream or creek would require a miracle to fix whatever bones I might break.

Valorie Arms says:
June 16th, 2018 at 7:31 am

I visited the Healing Springs on Wednesday and got two gallons of water. I had a rash on my face that wouldn’t go away, I put the water in a mister and put it on my face Wednesday night, today is Saturday and after applying it several times a day, it is almost completely healed. Thank God for his healing water!

Hello Rev. John! We would love to know more history of the church, have you ever scanned that 200th anniversary history by chance? We would love to see it.

Rev John J Wilson says:
January 25th, 2018 at 12:26 am

Yes, Nathanael Walker was actually my 1th g.g.f. His son redesigned the front of the Church. The Walkers dominated the area with ownership of over 10,000 acres of land. As a Pastor myself, I would like to see more on the church history. I have a copy of the 200th anniversary of the Church. Noticed the Pastor’s name was Hunter. I wondered if he was related to Larry Hunter a attorney in Greenville and another Walker descendant. He did much on the history and I also recognized some of those photos. Thanks for responding.

Meredith Adams says:
May 17th, 2018 at 5:26 pm

Hi! Do you know who the pastor was at Healing Springs Baptist Church in 1921?

Adell Wright says:
January 24th, 2018 at 6:07 pm

Where do I get consent? I would love to visit God’s Land

SCIWAY says:
January 25th, 2018 at 2:33 pm

Yes, that is what we meant 🙂

Vick Lowder says:
January 24th, 2018 at 5:12 pm

I think they are referring to the photos. I think you have to get permission from the photographer to use them.

SCIWAY says:
January 24th, 2018 at 1:54 pm

Dear Reverend Wilson, thanks for your note and of course not! We only mean that the pictures, which are generously donated to the South Carolina Picture Project by volunteer photographers around the state, can not be used unless one has written permission from the photographers themselves. We try hard to protect their rights. The legends – and most importantly, the water – are for all to share. It is exciting that you are a descendant of the church’s founder. Do you mean Mr. Walker?

Rev John J Wilson says:
January 24th, 2018 at 12:39 pm

Was curious – The story starts off “do not use without permission” Do not use what? The story is as old as the place itself. I have seen most of it written in various ways. My 8th G.Grandfather first walked that land and started the first Baptist Church of Healing Springs. He and his sons fought in that war along with my other 8th g. grandfather, Patrick Caine. There are no copyrites to a almost 300-year-old story.

Steve Kershaw says:
June 30th, 2017 at 7:33 pm

The times I have been have always been wonderful. On the hot days it seemed to be at least ten degrees cooler down by the taps. The water, for myself, I’ll just put it out thee, the glory is to God. This place is special no doubt – I’m a believer but not a practicing Christian, you feel the power at this place though, that’s the only way I know how to describe it. I’m sure others will attest to the same. In closing I will say that if you believe in the Holy Spirit you will feel the presence here and even if you don’t or have other beliefs, or none at all, there truly is healing power in that water. Visit, be graceful and respectful. You can’t go wrong.

Thomas Major says:
August 26th, 2017 at 9:29 am

I’ve read your post and live near the well, if you could figure out shipping I could send you some. A lot of these places don’t allow liquid to be shipped.

A D says:
July 3rd, 2017 at 9:52 pm

Has anyone been able to get some of this water to you yet? If not, my husband and I MIGHT be able to!

SCIWAY says:
June 7th, 2017 at 2:15 pm

Lacy, we recently visited the springs since it is about a two-hour drive from our office. It is a magical place, and the water is delicious! It is heartwarming to see so many there gathering water, looking for its healing properties. We sincerely hope you are able to visit soon. It will be worth the trip!

Lacy says:
June 6th, 2017 at 6:08 pm

I live in Texas and my boss told me about this place. I would love some of that water since it sounds amazing with all of its healing properties. God is so good. I wish someone could send me some since it’s like a 15-hour drive. I am so happy that so many people have gotten to go and reap the great benefits. May God bless you all.

Kathy says:
May 29th, 2017 at 10:46 am

One of my best friends just returned from visiting this spring and brought me some back. I have had some serious health problems, but I am drinking this water every morning and praying for a total healing. I can’t wait to see and feel the healing that this water brings. In Jesus’s Name.

Amanda Satterfield says:
May 7th, 2017 at 8:23 pm

Hello, Priscilla from SA who commented in January 2016. I will be going to God’s Acre Healing Springs next week, Lord willing, and I will be more than happy to mail you a jug of the healing water. We will be on Spring Break next week and I plan to take a ride there. If you still want the healing water, just let me know. I’m truly excited about the trip. To God be the glory for all the testimonies that have been given. You all really encourage me, and as a disciple of the Lord, encourage me even more to spread the Good News. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.

Olivia says:
May 13th, 2018 at 7:59 pm

How long were you drinking the water? I bought the holy blessed water from the river of Jordan last year where Jesus was baptized and I still haven’t received any healing but we don’t drink that one. I’m excited and feeling hopeful for this water since we can drink it.

Mia says:
April 1st, 2017 at 10:03 pm

It works! I have cancer and I was going to die in 3 months, but now I am healed!

Robert Urtz says:

I have been here (in the summer) and there were people lying in the stream. They would be praying and really making it a spiritual experience.

Alex Walker says:

I'm pretty sure I'm a direct descendant of Nathaniel Walker! I know my Walker line came out of Barnwell County, SC sometime between the late 1700s and early 1800s.

We are sincerely praying and hoping for the best for you and your dad! I hope you both are able to make a trip there together at some point in the near future. When you go, there is a very close parking lot to the beginning of the springs so it is very accessible if that time does come. Blessings to you and yours!

Janet Hipp says:
April 30th, 2017 at 4:52 am

This is an amazing story! I have wanted to go to God’s Healing Water for two years since I became aware of it while my 88-year-old Daddy was in the hospital! Just can’t find time to get there between taking care of Daddy and my health! Thanks for sharing your story! God bless you and yours!

Proof……. Went to Gods Acre Healing Springs yesterday to get some healing water. Took a bottle to my grandfather in the hospital. Which he drank last night. They said his X-rays were getting worse. The medicines weren’t working or helping. They wanted to discharge him and put him in the care of hospice. Anticipating him to transition in the next couple of days.

I got a call from my nanny today telling me that his X-ray was doing better. He is doing better and they are keeping him in the hospital to continue with antibiotics. Now tell me this ain’t a blessing and that God ain’t good. Will be taking him some more tonight Faith is all you need. Believe. Claim it.

Update…..The week of November 9, 2015 I contacted DHEC to inquire about the status of the healing springs water, due to recent flooding in SC and was informed that the water was tested and had NO bacteria and continues to be SAFE to consume as it has always been. I thanked them for their prompt response and immediately headed to the HEALING SPRINGS, BLACKVILLE, SC…….NATURES BEST KEPT SECRET!!!!!

My grandmother is from this town but relocated to Florida when she was a child. We went to the Spring while at a family reunion. It's very beautiful. My grandmother always spoke of this place but I was just happy to be able to see it with her for the first time in 55+ years.

The town has the right to govern their business as they may. It’s a very small town and does not utilize much of the state’s revenue. Adjacent to the spring is a wonderful store that draws a good steady business, which no doubt contributes considerable revenue to the town’s local revenue. That’s a good thing. It’s one of the rare, wholesome places, most people can appreciate.

A friend took me to visit there. It was a very hot summer day. I walked barefeet in the spring. The water was so cold, felt wonderful to my feet, I didn’t want to step out of the spring. I noticed an amazing feeling, as if the minerals regenerated the tissue in my feet. I took about 10 gallons home. I drank it over the following weeks. It’s not a myth. The water is definitely purifying to the body.

September 14th, 2015 at 10:30 pm

I live in SC and pay property tax on all property that I own. How does the SC Treasurer get the tax owed on the property from God since He owns it? Is there a “spiritual loophole” that we don’t know about? And where is the Attorney/Notary that witnessed the signatures for the transfer of the deed? There’s something shady in Blackville!

SCIWAY says:

Hello, Matilda. You can show up at the spring and take some water, pending how much is flowing. Safe travels!

Visited God's Acre Healing Springs today. As a little girl, my mom and aunts visited the spring frequently, and of course they believed in the healing powers of the spring water. Many jugs were filled and brought home with us. My mom lived to be 96 years old and my aunt lived to be 85. I would like to contribute their longevity to the healing powers of the spring water. I don't have any scientific proof but I do believe in God and I know he works miracles. I'm personally claiming the healing powers of the healing springs……I have FAITH…..Today I filled jugs and bottles of water to bring home. While there I drank about 32 oz of water and the taste was crisp, fresh, unlike any other water I've tasted. Research indicates that this water has been tested and found to have many minerals in it. I will be returning to God's Acre Healing Springs…..DON"T MISS OUT ON YOUR BLESSING!!!!!

I lived in South Carolina for a number of years, and I have never heard of these healing springs. What an awesome blessing! This is a wonderful place of praise.

I was having trouble getting pregnant and read an article about the springs. My husband and I went to get water and prayed while we were there. I got pregnant that night! I have a beautiful daughter to show for it!

I make the round trip from Charleston whenever I can. This makes the absolute BEST ice. You need at least 5 gallons and nothing but this water. When it is gone, you can tell the difference! And PRAY while you are there.

My son, granddaughter, and I went early one morning just as the sun began to rise. It was one of the most peaceful and pleasant places I’ve ever visited. As I filled my water bottles, I prayed asking God and believing that this water will be a miracles for healing.

It is a true mineral spring in the sense that the water has more dissolved natural (and healthful) minerals than most stream waters or deep well waters in that general region. It is more like limestone aquifer water. You can get empty clean new gallon milk jugs at the nearby Mennonite Store (on Hwy. 3).

We thank God and Mr. Boylston for the dedication of this precious Spring, so that all can come and get artesian water at no charge. It’s a priceless gift.

There’s a small country store on the corner that is a delight to visit as well. We make it a point to stop in each time we come.

We travel once a month to fill jugs and bring them home. Our local tap water removes the stainless steel coating from our silverware in the dishwasher, so we sure don’t want to drink it!

My daughter, who moved from California across the country to SC, took me here once. Such memories!

Greater Beulah Baptist Church of Jacksonville was here to experience the miracles of God’s healing water. What a blessing it is.

Taking some friends to the spring, and we are praying for a blessing.

My daughter and son-in-law (whose family lives in Blackville) brought me a gallon back. I loved it!!! Begging my husband to take me there next summer, and will bring back to Texas as many jugs as my dually can carry.
