Visitors from around the world flocked to Hot Springs National Park’s historic Bathhouse Row in the 1800s and early 1900s to bathe in the healing thermal waters, thought to have healing powers. With the advent of modern medicine, the bathhouses were closed, but the buildings are still preserved and many are open for tours. Cool mineral water also flows from the local springs and many people stop on Bathhouse Row to fill up water jugs at the public fountain. For directions and complete information, go to www.hotsprings.org.

Visit the national headquarters for Mountain Valley Spring Water and its historic Classical Revival building. Tour the historic bathhouses. Bring a jug and fill it up with delicious natural spring water in the community fountain. Shop for antiques, fine jewelry, gifts, souvenirs and more. Or just relax and take in the scenery.

Don't forget that several of the Bed and Breakfast's in town are incredible historical sites to see.  Hilltop Manor Bed and Breakfast was originally built in 1890.  This Craftsman Manor was built on a 5 acre estate which borders the National Park Forest.  Originally built by Mose Klyman and as a bachelor's home it is rumored that Al Capone and his gang use to party at the property.  If you stay at '''Hilltop Manor Bed and Breakfast''' you will be welcome to explore the land which is scattered with stone walls and stairs, spring house, stone horse trough, and foundation walls left from the old dairy barn which is rumored to have hidden Jessie and Frank James when they were hiding out.  These structures were built in the middle 1800's.  It is amazing what you can discover in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
