Hot Springs Bath Houses

There was this row of bath houses that were built in the 20's and 30's. People would come to bathe in the water, because there was so many minerals in it they thought it would heal them. One of them is still open for business. We went into the one called Fordyce which is now a museum. It was so neat.
