anyone have pics...
I found this...

The Hot Wells Hotel was built in 1886 and was a legendary world-class health spa and resort. The hotel was a lavish four-story Victorian style structure situated on 21 lush riparian acres along the San Antonio river on South Presa Street. It has burned three times since 1925 but the remains of the bath house are still there. The bath house is the round structure on the lower right in this postcard. Hot sulfur water from several springs was piped to various swimming pools and bath areas, and the springs still flow intermittently to this day.

There are other threads about the old hotel. Been there many times over the years myself. Many postcards and old photos floating around in these forums and others. There was also Terrell Wells Bath house & Harlandale Bath house. Exact locations unknown. But we would all like to know.

P.S. check your quit smoking thread.
