Survey number HABS FL-277
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: This unique structure, built soon after 1900, contains a spring recognized for its medicinal qualities by Indians, settlers, and subsequent developers of this locale. Designed by McClure and Holmes, architects of Jacksonville, the Bath House is composed of spaces once used for doctors' examination and treatment spaces, a concessions area and dressing rooms surrounding the bathing area. A concrete retaining wall, with several water gates and galleries, insures the purity of spring water unpolluted by the rise and fall of the adjacent Suwannee River.
