Riverbend’s Connection to the Past

Long before recorded history, indigenous peoples frequented the hot springs.  Generations later, in the 1800’s, the Chiricahua Apache sought out the springs as a place to pray.  It’s said that Geronimo spent an entire year at the springs!  Native Americans considered the springs to be neutral ground – a place where they could gather in peace.  When the Spanish encountered the springs, they called them Ojo Caliente de las Palomas, which means hot springs of the doves. The first hot springs bath house was built in the 1880’s for use by cowboys and by the early 1900’s, hot springs hotels started to appear.  Riverbend Hot Springs got its start as a bait shop, built and run by Lee and Sylvia Foerstner, eventually converting it into a hot springs destination. When Lee and Sylvia’s son, Jake Foerstner, took over operations, he had a vision which has fully come to life with the beauty and artistry evident throughout the ever-expanding complex.

The Springs

The spring system that supplies Riverbend and other hot springs in the area produces 2.5 million gallons of hot spring water every day, making it the southwestern US’s largest mineral aquifer.  The waters, which range from 95-110 degrees, are world famous for their rich mineral content, including chloride, the largest ingredient, recognized as a germ killer that sterilizes the skin and is the reason the water is so pure. In addition, while most hot springs around the world have a strong sulfur smell, the hot springs in T or C are virtually odorless.
