Bill Harrison – Castle Hot Springs – Dowager of Arizona Resorts

Soup & salad bar with dessert. Then sit back for another great presentation by Bill. Much has changed in Arizona over the past 118 years, but one thing has stayed the same — every day, more than 200,000 gallons of hot, mineral water pours from a cleft in the rocks located in a remote canyon in the Bradshaw Mountains north of Phoenix.  Opened in 1896, Castle Hot Springs welcomed the wealthy and powerful of the world, including: Carnegies, Roosevelts, Vanderbilts, Astors, and Fords. They all came to soak in the “magic waters” that were touted as a cure for rheumatism, blood disorders, insomnia, kidney disease and other troublesome ills. Castle Hot Springs closed to the public in 1976 after a raging inferno reduced many of the buildings to ashes. But its glorious history lives on!
