Description

This plan shows several natural springs at Hot Springs, the location of pipe lines attached to them, buildings they connect to, and the roadways around them.

Biographical/Historical Note

The city of Hot Springs was named after the springs there, whose waters have an average temperature of 143 °F and which yield almost a million gallons of water each day. It is said that Native Americans of the areas visited the healing waters of the "Valley of the Vapors" long before European explorers reached the area. President Andrew Jackson designated Hot Springs as the United States' first federal reservation in 1832, and the town of Hot Springs was officially incorporated on January 10, 1851.
