The Jefferson Pools
Legend has it that the first person to discover the healing power of the warm springs was an Indian brave. Weary from traveling across the rugged mountain terrain, he bathed in the warm mineral waters, and was instantly renewed. According to legend, the springs of Bath then became a sacred place to the Native Americans of the region. Not long thereafter, the Warm Springs became the first stop by European visitors and wealthy Americans on their summer sojourn to “take the waters”.
The magnificent, naturally warm mineral springs are located in the village of Warm Springs. Originally developed as a spa resort in the mid 1750’s, the first bath house (the Gentlemen’s Pool House) was opened to the public on June 1, 1761 and is now considered the oldest wooden spa structure in continuous operation in the United States. The inside octagonal wooden pool is approximately 120 feet in circumference, and holds 40,000 gallons of constantly flowing, crystal clear mineral spring water which remains a constant 98.5 degrees regardless of the outside temperature. On June 1, 1836 a separate Ladies Pool House was opened, fed by a separate spring whose waters have the same properties as those which supply the adjacent Gentlemen’s Pool House.
Today, as in days past, the pools remain a popular attraction to visitors who continue to seek their healing powers and to historians interested in the architectural and historical importance of the structures. Anyone who has enjoyed a soak in these mineral rich baths understands why they have been an enduring attraction for over two centuries.
