Hot Springs History
What makes Hot Springs so significant is that it contains elements of “resort” and “rural”. Many of the village’s buildings exist today in the same form as they have for 150 years or more. This quaint village is home to the post office, market, and apothecary which have been fixtures on the street for over a century. Stroll, shop, and enjoy a variety of dining options along a picturesque Main Street.
From June to September Hot Springs is home to the Farmer’s Market which offers locally-grown produce, crafts, artisan goods, and entertainment. The Omni Homestead Resort, which has been the centrepiece of Hot Springs since 1766, offers first-class lodging, dining and an abundance of recreational activities year ’round for both the recreational and business traveller. The Garth Newel Music Centre has been presenting world-class chamber music, jazz and blues performances since its inception in 1973.
