HOT SPRINGS CONNECTION 2022

May 9-12
Hot Springs, AR

Hot Springs, Arkansas is rich with history surrounding this thermal center. The land for Hot Springs National Park was set aside as a reservation in 1832 making it the oldest national park among current N. P. S. parks, predating Yellowstone National Park by forty years. Though it was officially designated as the eighteenth national park on March 4, 1921. Development amid the park evolved from rustic troughs carrying thermal water to beautiful Victorian buildings several of which featured marble walls, billiard rooms, gymnasiums, and stained glass windows. These buildings are now known as Bathhouse Row. Two of the eight buildings still operate with traditional soaking and spa services. Others provide space for shops, a cultural center, visitor’s center and a luxury hotel. History is not just a thing of the past in this unique mecca. The Superior Bathhouse is now home to the only brewery in a United States National Park, and the only brewery in the world to utilize thermal spring water to make their beer.
