"Fountain of Health"

White Sulphur Springs was once a popular health resort, attracting large numbers of people to drink the water and bathe in the spring. This structure encircles a natural spring that was thought to possess great healing qualities. An early advertisement claimed the water cured everything from rheumatism and indigestion to dandruff and insomnia.

Constructed in 1908, the building housed a concession area, clinical examination and treatment rooms, and dressing rooms on either side of the bathing area. Mechanical gates were used to keep the river from entering the bathing pool.
