Inscription
White Sulphur Spring is one of many attractions in the park. In the early 1890s a bathhouse and dance pavilion were built nearby. Unfortunately, a fire destroyed the buildings in 1899.
Early settlers in the area recognized the therapeutic values of the mineral springs. Local pharmacies actually bottled and sold water from the springs as a treatment for a variety of ailments.
Men working with the depression-era Work Projects Administration (WPA) built the stone landing and steps in the 1930s. The steps lead to where White Sulphur Springs trickles out of the travertine and into the Bighorn River.
The postcard (inset, circa 1900) shows White Sulphur Spring flowing at a significantly greater volume than is seen today.
