I was reading through John Gundy’s book “Facts About El Dorado Springs and Community.”  The book, written in 1948, was praising the new Tough Addition in the southeast corner of town fronting Highway 54 as an example of modern, progressive home building. Then he went on to express one of the reasons he believed El Dorado Springs was a good place to live.
