The town of Hot Springs has been attracting visitors to its thermal springs for well over 200 years. This unique site, consisting of an array of 47 thermal springs, lies in the Arkansas Ouachita Mountain Valley.
The most prominent building in historic Hot Springs is caught in this city scene, the Arlington Resort Hotel. The Arlington has been the center for grand balls, social events and relaxation since 1875 when the first three story, 120 room hotel was built. The hotel offered spacious rooms illuminated with gas lights. The hotel's two wings wrapped around a grand court and colonial porches extended the full length.
