Visit the Indigenous Historical Baths!

For those of you who have not been to the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort before or have always wondered what that little building is sitting on a plateau of tufa rock overlooking the Columbia Valley: This is the original bathhouse, one of the first buildings erected at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort to facilitate the use of natural rock pools of hot mineral water. 

The Indigenous Baths, a treasured legacy of our history, were very popular among the Indigenous people and early settlers, including explorer David Thompson.  The stone bathhouse contains three of the original baths and there are several shallow tubs carved out of the tufa rock above the building.

There are breathtaking views of the Columbia Valley from this plateau and we invite you to take a little hike and discover this hidden treasure.

Enjoy!
