Whe Hot Springs
of Arkansas
The legenitfiry history of Hot
Sprhyrs iy as romantic as its history
is •interesting si'jee the lime the firs!
white man is known to have visited
here. It is believed that these tiler
mal springs wore the ones sought for
as the Fountain of Perpetual Youth
by Ponce de Loon, one ol the early
Spanish explorers, though in vain.
Do Soto is given (he first credit
of discovering Hot Springs and It is
quite certain that lie and his explor
ing army spent the winter of 1541-42
here, while direc ting a search for the
fountain of youth as well as for gold.
Translated writings of cavaliers, who
were with the expedition, mentions
discovering hot lakes. As ‘here are
no hot lakes in this pa't of America,
it is certain that this is the place re
ferred to, as up to the time the gov
ernment began to make improvements,
trie steaming hot water poured down
the mountain side, fomiing large pools
or lakes of hot water. The process
also formed a deposit called tuba, in
cruslrtg tlie mountain %lope.
The hot springs were as celebrated
among the Indians for emative prop
erties as now with civilization. They
believed the Great Spirit breathed a
healing power into the. waters, and
the savage breast was filled with such
sacred awe that in the vallew was im
munity from harm and strife. A
great deal of truth is attached to this
beautiful tradition, as early French
trappers and settlers dwelt here in
peace With Indian neighbors.
The Early Settlers.
The first person to settle at Hot
Springs was Manuel Frudhomme, a
Louisiana planter, in 1807. in 1811 ho
was joined by .John Perclval and Isaac
(’ales. In 1820 Joseph Mallard built
u double log cabin and this was the
first structure that could he termed
a hotel, in 1828 Ltidonicus Bolding
settled here, put up the first store
and bowed great enterprise in build
ing improved cabins, in 1810 Asa
Thompson leased the springs and
erected the first bath houses.
Tlia LI At Cnrinne r\f "7* rv rl *» »<
Can truly be called a City of Hotels
and Hath Houses. No other resort is
so well equipped to care for the sick
and afflicted as we'l as pleasure
seekers. Several of its big hotels are
considered among the largest and
most palatial in the world, and its
hotel facilities are ample to aceommo-'
date its yearly increase of visitors,
overnment Ownership.
The ownership and control of the
Hot Springs of Arkansas by the Unit
ed States Government is absolute,
and its endorsement of them for the
treatment of certain ailments is un
equivocal.
After due investigation Congress
took possession of the springs in the
year 1MH2. and it retained around them
a reservation ample to protect' there
from all encroachments. It was the
firs) national park reservation of tar
country.
They are se! apart by thi“ act a t
A National Sanitarium for all time ’I
and “dedicated to the people of ihe
United States to be observed free Horn
sal or alienation.'1
In the year 1904 tile State Legisla
ture passed an act granting the gen
eral government exclusive jurisdiction
and sovereignty over the reservation,
since which time the government has
made rules and restrictions for ♦ho«,e
who dispense the waters an ^practice
in connection with the mthat have re
sulted in much better service to tin
sick.
Government Improvements
'j he Government scheme of improve
ments at Hot Springs lias been going
on for years.
The niount..in side for a distance 4
several hundred feet has been beaut:
fully parked and planleu to shrubbery
and climbing vines and flowers. The
Grand and other entrances to Ihe res
ervation are works or great architec
tural beauty.
The most important improvement to
Hot Springs made by the government
is the system of driveways and walks
on the throe mountains comprising
the reservation. They wind around
tile sides of ihe mountain by easy
grades to the summits of live or six
mired feet above the city, disclos
ing at every point some new scene
o- beauty among the surroundings
peaks and valleys of the Ozark moun
tains. There are about iifteen miles
of drives and six miles f walks.
The government’s interests are look
i (1 after by a superintendent who is
appointed by the President.
