Hot Springs is the site of a number of resorts that make use of the springs.The area is historically important to the development of Bath County. As early as the mid 18th century, travelers came to use the springs. The first inn to accommodate them was built in 1766 by Thomas Bullitt. The most prominent modern resort, The Homestead, traces its origin to this inn.The Homestead, Mustoe House, The Yard, Barton Lodge, Switchback School, and Garth Newel are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.March 2009 shootingOn March 21, 2009, two employees of the The Homestead were shot and killed in the hotel kitchen; the community of Hot Springs was briefly locked down under code red procedures as a security precaution. Authorities identified fellow employee Beacher Ferrel Hackney as a suspect in the killings. The slayings were the first homicides in Bath County since 1983.
