The definition of SPA is: a mineral spring considered to have health-giving properties. For over 100 years travelers have come to Red Boiling Springs to benefit from the 5 different types of mineral water unique to this area. The 1880s saw a boom in the development of mineral springs spa hotels and resorts as summer getaways due to the popularity of places like Saratoga Springs in New York. The 1920’s and 1930’s would see thousands of visitors each year with as many as 14,000 visitors to our small town of approximately 800 residents at the time.
