Castle Hot Springs Part II
November 19, 2018
Had a great weekend working on narrative sequences, like this one:
Daily Scratchboard Whip Out:
Here's a couple more images from my trip, last week, out to the historic Castle Hot Springs:
Castle Hot Springs in its heyday.
The big building at right burned in 1976,
closing the resort for many years.
The new owners built casitas in that area.

The resort was built in 1896 and had many famous guests including John F. Kennedy in 1946. His father had sent him to the springs to recuperate after WWII. It was a long hike from the railhead, which stopped at Morristown, which was about 20 miles away and a long stage ride was the only way in for a long time.

The new owners have refurbished the main building and added a swimming pool. It has a great, hidden away feeling.

They are having a soft opening in late December. Should be open in January.
