Mineral spring comparison chart

Restored in 1994 by the Mineral Springs Foundation and its private owner, Kerstin Ericsson, who also designed the unique font. Twin is a favorite among many who enjoy the natural taste of this strong-flowing spring, and it’s also popular for making mineral water lemonade. Drilled in the 1920s by William S. Crosby, and originally flowing from two depths and flowing into one, this spring has been known as Crosby Spring, Twin Link Spring, named for another former owner, and even Twin Lithia Spring, as traces of Lithium are found in the water.

About the Font Artist
Artist: Kerstin Eriksson
Kerstin Eriksson

Colorado Springs Architect, Artist and Font Designer, Kerstin Eriksson created the Twin Spring bronze font in a style that she often expresses in clay works. Ms. Eriksson served on the Manitou Springs City Council, and was active in a mentoring program for local high school students. Kerstin owned the building at Twin Spring for many years, became a member of the Mineral Springs Foundation board of directors and worked with Architect Duane Waldo to recreate the historic gazebo that now sits in 7-Minute Park. The gazebo at 7-Minute Park is a re creation of a structure that once housed the Ute Iron Spring near the top of Ruxton Avenue.
