“Attractions & Culture in Hot Springs, AR”
The first floor introduces you to the beauty of the bathhouse. From the lobby's marble and stained glass transoms, to the marble partitions of the bath halls, to the stained glass ceiling in the Men's Bath Hall, you can see why the Fordyce Bathhouse was considered to be the best. This ceramic fountain is at one end of the Fordyce lobby. Spring water flowed from the spout at one time. The Fordyce Bathhouse operated from 1915-1962, when it closed due to declining business. It remained vacant until reopening as the park visitor center in 1989. Now you can watch an orientation movie and tour.
Nice stop it was free, liked to see the old style bath house. It's a self guided tour worth the 30-1hr of your time. It's a national park museum so donations are always welcome.
This was sooooo much fun. We truly felt we were walking through a time capsule. So well preserved. It was not refurnished - which I prefer to see how it looked in its day, instead of brand new.
