A mineral springs resort was established here by R.C. Tyree sometime between 1814 and 1822. By 1834 it was the most celebrated watering place in the state. Presidents Andrew Jackson and James K. Polk were guests here. Burned during the Civil War, the resort was later rebuilt. Guests were received until the early 1930s. Its buildings were razed 15 years later.
