This town sprang up around a bubbling spring, when reports of the waterÂ’s healing powers spread throughout the area in the mid- 1800s. Between the 1860s and early 1900s, this was a flourishing resort town built around the many types of mineral water found here. People came from the cities and rural areas alike to relax and partake, and nine grand hotels and many boarding houses operated here. YouÂ’ll see three that remain on the trail.
