Beyond the Day Spa
Warm Mineral Springs offers more than just a spa experience.
Beneath its depths is one of the most important underwater archeological sites in America.
It is believed that Warm Mineral Springs dates back to the Ice Age. During exploratory dives in the 1950s, the remains of a prehistoric hunter and seven other humans were discovered in a very well preserved state. Similarly, evidence of several creatures have been extracted from the spring, including saber tooth tigers, giant sloths, tortoises, and even camels. The Springs has been added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
