WACO SPRINGS. Waco Springs is in Indian Springs Park on the west bank of the Brazos River near the Waco Suspension Bridge, in McLennan County (at 31°33' N, 97°08' W). The springs were once the site of an Indian village. Fort Fisher was established near them in 1837. In the 1990s the springs flowed through a rock walkway along the river bank and emptied into the Brazos River. A state-approved marker was placed at the site in 1964.
