Hot Springs in Madison County became a tourist attraction in 1778 when the Patton brothers of Asheville built a hotel big enough to house 1000 guests. The springs, rumored to have amazing healing powers, drew throngs of tourists. The original hotel burned in 1830 but was replaced the following year. This hotel burned in 1920 and was once more replaced by a hotel that burned in 1976. Since then, the springs have been less popular.\r\n
