Description
Great herds of bison and deer once gathered at the sulfur springs of West Baden and neighboring French Lick to satisfy their thirst and a craving for minerals. Native Americans traveled from great distances to camp and hunt here, and then to sell their furs and hides to French traders. With the construction of the French Lick Springs Hotel in 1845 and the West Baden Springs Hotel in 1902, the area flourished as a tourist destination until the Great Depression. West Baden was named after Weisbaden, Germany, famous for its spas and thermal springs.
