Links to Local Sites in Hot Springs Area
The Federal Government set aside Hot Springs Reservation in 1832 to protect the area for upcoming generations. The area has 47 hot springs flowing with water that comes out at 143 degrees F. In 1921, the name was changed to Hot Springs National Park, and is the only city that is also a National Park.
