Old Town Hot Springs Memory Project

For centuries people have been soaking in the hot water flowing from a hillside overlooking the Yampa River, on the eastern side of present-day Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The Heart Spring feeds a collection of pools, now known as the Old Town Hot Springs, but through the years this area has also been called Bath House Springs, Swim Sauna, Steamboat Health and Recreation, or just simply, "The Pool." The Old Town Hot Springs Memory Project is a collection of interviews with people who have long been associated - as employees, Board members, or 'enjoy-ers' - with the iconic downtown Steamboat springs. It is intended to be a collection that continues to grow over time.
