Abstract (in English)

Unlike many other American national parks that are well-know for their natural scenery or abundant wildlife, Hot Springs National Park is most often associated with its majestic row of early twentieth-century bathhouses. These eight bathing establishments recall a period when the availability of leisure time and an interest in the therapeutic benefit of spas made Hot Springs, Arkansas, a resort of national reputation. But since the late 1940s, drugs have replaced bathing as a treatment for both minor ailments and major diseases.
