Bathhouse Row

Bathhouse Row is a collection of bathhouses, buildings, and gardens located at Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  The bathhouses were included in 1832 when the Federal Government took over four parcels of land to preserve natural hot springs, their mineral waters which lack the sulphur odor of most hot springs, and their area of origin on the slopes of Hot Springs Mountain.  The existing bathhouses are the 3rd and 4th generations of bathhouses along Hot Springs Creek and some sit directly over the hot springs.  The bathhouse industry went into a steep decline during the mid-20th century as advancements in medicine made bathing in natural hot springs appear less believable as a remedy for illness.  Bathhouse Row was designated a National Historic Landmark on May 28, 1987.

 

Hot Springs Mountain Tower

Hot Springs Mountain Tower is a Hot Springs landmark and is located atop Hot Springs Mountain in the National Park.  The original observatory was erected in 1877.  When lightning and fire destroyed the structure, a second tower was built.  The 165-foot steel structure, later named the Rix Tower, stood for over 60 years.  Following years of coordinated efforts between the community and the National Park Service, the new Hot Springs Mountain Tower opened to the public in 1983.  This 216-foot superstructure affords a breathtaking panorama encompassing 140 miles of beautiful Hot Springs, the Ouachita Mountains and the surrounding Diamond Lakes. It's a great way to start off or end a day of sightseeing in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.
