[The Crazy Water Well--1974]

Description:

The original Crazy Woman's Well is preserved under the sidewalk at the northwest corner of the Crazy Hotel. This is the well the mentally-challenged (or the once-designated "Crazy woman") drank from that "cured" her dementia. Although not used for years, the well probably only requires a pump to resume production.
Printed on the back of this picture is "The Crazy Well as today", and stamped "Mar. 21, 1974."
