First called Hot Springs Camp was founded on the strength of silver, lead and zinc discoveries in the vicinity. The hot springs itself didn’t seem to be very high on the priority list of Ainsworth until the 1920s. The town was starting to decline as a mining center when Nelson’s John Burns put in a pool and began to develop the springs commercially. A very progressive move! By the time the pool and caves were finished in the early 1930s, the great depression was in full swing. in 1983, the pool and caves at Ainsworth Hot Springs were renovated and new change rooms were constructed. The result of this work was an increase in popularity, which lead to the need for accommodation and food services. Cost includes transportation and driver.
