Description:

Records indicate that local Native American tribes used the springs as early as 10,000 years ago, making them the first documented people to associate the hot springs with health and wellness. The springs served as a place of worship and sanctity, and were often used to perform healing rituals on the ill or injured.

Then, in 1880, a European settler named R.J. Snow discovered the springs and alerted other settlers of the location. Thomas Moffett, a friend of Snow, identified the importance of making the waters readily available to those in need.
