About District 1

Historic District 1 is home to Hot Springs National Park, a majority of thermal and cold Springs along with the aquifers that recharge them. It has been a health and relaxation resource to people for thousands of years. In modern times, the bathhouse became an architectural attraction to be preserved by the National Park Service. District 1 extends from the north edge of the Belvedere, south to Bellaire Drive off Malvern and east of Magic Springs, west to the center of Cedar Glades Park off Wildcat Road.
