Historic Spring-fed Pools and Structures in Warm Springs, Va., Slated for Restoration and Rehabilitation

In January 2016, officials at the Homestead Resort in Bath County, Va., owned by Omni Hotels and Resorts, announced that they had begun a historic structures report on the spring-fed pools and surrounding bathhouses at Warm Springs (a few miles away from the Homestead location in Hot Springs) that have drawn visitors to the area since at least the days of Thomas Jefferson. The report is to be the first step in a process of repairing and restoring the property, which have been described as “threatened” because of structural damage and lack of maintenance over time. Restoration work is to be guided by five-member advisory committee that includes historic preservation experts.
