Photographers enjoyed the well but the flow finally ceased. It was said that stones had been thrown into the well, causing it to cease flowing. When the well was re-opened by the Plattsville-Bright Optimists, a carpetball was found.
Another well was dug in Plattsville Park when it was on Albert Street, producing a flow of 2,500,000 gallons per day. This was covered over in 1966 when the Canada Sand Paper company expanded and the park moved to its present spot.
