It was found in a clearing with trees and a hand pump. It sounds silly, but to prime the pump you must bring a gallon water. You can use a small stream running along a stone wall to priming the pump.
An indication is placed next to the spring. "When Mother Cabrini purchased the property in 1890 to create an orphanage for women, there was no water on its grounds. Mother Cabrini gave instructions to the sisters to dig at this spot by the grace and power of God. Water came forth, which continues today to flow and provide water for St. Cabrini's children."
