Harrison was first discovered in the 1800’s but it’s history is long and rich. The Native Americans have been inhabiting the land for 100’s of years. Lakotas named their waters “Wakan Tanka” or “Great Mystery,” the Salinan Indians called them “Heaven’s Spot” for their health benefits. The springs are considered a sacred place for many people and many cultures across the globe.
The hot springs, which the town is named after, formed naturally due to local volcanic activity. They are loaded with magnesium, sulfate, iron, chloride, potassium, zinc, calcium and many more minerals. Some of the many health benefits of these springs are that they help you get a good night’s rest, relieve any aches and pains, and can also assist in weight loss. The heat and mineral combination help you sweat, burn calories, and load you with vitamins and minerals.
