L L Chapman House

(parking lot between First Presbyterian and Spiller's Furniture)

This is the site of the Chapman house where the first artesian well was discovered in Prattville. Accidentally discovered while drilling for a well, within 30 years there would be around 400 artesian wells in "The Fountain City." As the city drilled deeper wells, many of the smaller ones "went dry."
