|The past whispers to visitors of Indian Springs WMA, even as they enjoy the scenic beauty and wildlife of the present landscape. Native Americans, leaving their stone tools and arrowheads behind, gave way to pioneering settlers. Fairview Mountain, located on the area, served as a Civil War military signal post. Today, Indian Springs WMA's 6,400 acres are a wildlife haven and a source of outdoor adventure and recreation.
