Hot Springs National Park

The present masonry Lamar Bathhouse, completed in 1923, has a symmetrical, California style of architecture. The large lobby contains nostalgic murals of historic landscapes, and country scenes.Art Deco stairs, signs, and lights decorated the building. Advertising "a tub for every-sized person," the Lamar Bathhouse also featured a large sun porch to promote "natural health".

Like many Victorian bathhouses the wooden 1890s Lamar Bathhouse had "sitckwork" decorations and railed roof walkways. An investigator wrote of the buildings' vulnerability.

"All agree that the vapor from the hot water rots all timber with which it comes in contact in remarkable short time?No more wooden buildings should be allowed."
