Long Description:

County of Gazebo: Benton County.
Some history around gazebo: The fenced off area behind the gazebo is a natural spring. It is referred to as The Indian Medical Center. Indigenous peoples, before the white man, came to these springs for the treatment of wounds and ailments. There is another spring at the other end of the park, the reason for the name "Twin Springs City Park."
The granite column rising next to the gazebo is a Union Monument. Unusual for Arkansas was a Confederate state. There is no Confederate Monument in the park.

Some of the rockwork at the Twin Springs dates to about 1880. One spring was said to contain a small amount of arsenic, which was thought to cure stomach problems.
