What is the history of your business? How does it tie into the intrigue of the area?
It was originally opened by a local family.In 1860 settlers heard a roar and found that one of the local hot springs had irrupted like a geyser. Once the eruption subsided a rock enclosure was constructed around the spring and in 1876 the original bathhouse was built that same hot spring is still in use at the bathhouse today and can be seen under the gazebo just north of the building.
