A Social History of Montana’s Hot Springs

April 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

| $20

Montana’s hot springs and hot water resorts bubble with fascinating histories of Native American legends, miraculous curative properties, isolated wilderness soaks, and glittering spas. Crude bathhouses built by early settlers in the 1800s gave way to ornate bathing resorts and social gathering centers. Some of these palatial resorts featured luxurious furnishings and services rivaling those found in Europe. Montana’s most famous resorts – including Boulder Hot Springs, Hunter’s Hot Springs, Corwin Hot Springs, and Broadwater Hot Springs – flourished and then faded from Montana’s landscape. Through photographs, personal interviews, and on-the-ground research, Jeff Birkby will explore the stories and legends of these hot water bathing resorts in Montana.
