It wasn’t until 1880 when European settler, R.J. Snow, discovered the springs here at Bonneville and told his friend, Thomas Moffett. Moffett, who quickly recognized the value of our waters, built Cascade Springs Hotel in 1881, and in 1885, started selling the water for 10 cents per bottle. Researchers, such as renowned chemist J.H. Fisk and the US Chemical Assayers from Washington DC, performed numerous chemical analyses of the waters and all agreed that the mineral content in these waters have potential good health qualities. News of this spread quickly and people from all across the country came to drink and bathe in the waters that could help with their kidney complaints, liver problems, dyspepsia, rheumatism, dropsy or general debility.
