The water was very high in mineral content and reputedly did wonders to help diminish the suffering caused by assorted diseases. The owner, a physician, built a large bathhouse at the springs and renamed them White Sulphur Springs. They were especially helpful for the miners at nearby Mineral Hill. Once Mineral Hill began to fade, however, business slowed. As near as one can tell, the doctor closed up shop in the mid-1870s and no other interest emerged in the area. Today absolutely nothing remains of the wooden bathhouse but the hot springs are going strong.Submitted by: HBC
