Bed and Breakfast Hot Springs Arkansas History
Hot Springs Arkansas became famous back in the late 1800s and early 1900s due to the natural hot springs in the area. Although, the hot springs in the Hot Springs area was actually discovered by Native Americans quite sometime before white men discovered the thermal springs. Native Americans used the springs for their healing capabilities and the area was a known "no fighting zone" where different tribes could gather and enjoy the springs together.
Once white men discovered the springs, the area quickly grew into a booming town. Bathhouses were built around the springs and the thermal mineral waters were pumped into the bathhouses so people could enjoy the healing capabilities of the thermal waters.
Visiting the bathhhouses soon became the thing to do. People would travel from near and far to have a relaxing weekend soaking in the baths. Others came as prescribed by their doctor to treat different kinds of illnesses when all else had failed.
Hot Springs Arkansas Started Booming
Because Hot Springs was the place to be, many people started moving to Hot Springs to start a business venture or just to be near a booming town. Investors and people with high status started moving in and building beautiful homes right next to Bathhouse Row.
The tradition of visiting the area continues to this day, and now Hot Springs is part of the U.S. National Parks System to protect it for future generations.
