Apparently at one point in time, Carlsbad was famous for it's mineral water. The man who discovered the source of the mineral water is also one of the founder's of the City of Carlsbad. Who knew? I didn't. Until I saw this statue just a few blocks from the main downtown area. His name is John A. Frazier. The mineral water source has been re-opened and you can get your fill here. I'll have to try this out some day.
