Warm Springs Pools
Prior to its settlement by colonists from Europe, Bath County was home to Native Americans, whose pathways traversed the valleys and mountain gaps, using them to travel to buffalo hunting grounds and for trade. Legend has it that the springs were discovered by a Native American brave in the 1600s as he traveled across the area on his way to a tribal council. He came upon the warm pools and soaked his weary body. He left refreshed, telling others about the pools. The trek to Warm Springs to “take the waters” was born.
Warm Springs soon developed into a spa resort, with a hotel constructed adjacent to the Pools. To accommodate the growing number of visitors, an octagonal stone basin was built in the 1760s to hold water for bathing. It was not covered by a building, but it was surrounded for privacy by a fence or hedge. This “Great Bath” was used by men and women on an alternating schedule during the day.
One notable guest was Thomas Jefferson, who visited in 1818 at the age of 75 and stayed for over three weeks, taking the water several times a day to help him allay the pain of rheumatism. Contrary to popular notion, Jefferson did not design the octagonal frame building covering the stone basin, which was built in the mid-1820s. This structure currently serves as the Men’s Bath House. The separate Ladies’ Bath House, a framed building that covers the circular bath for women, was added in the mid-1870s.
The buildings are listed as the Warm Springs Bath Houses on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places, and are also included in the Warm Springs and West Warm Springs Historic District.
