Downtown, Weeping Water Swinging Bridge City Park
Weeping Water gets its name from the stream that bisects the town. The stream was called “keet-so-tee-te-cut” in Native languages and “L’eau qui pluere” in French - “water that weeps” - after an Indian legend.

The stream also cuts through the limestone deposits formed two million years ago, which - combined with layers of Nehawka Flint - make this geological area unique.

The large limestone quarries, which gave the town an early industrial base - as well as a source for a unique local building material - continue to operate and provide the town with a strong economic base.
