at Lava Hot Springs in Idaho
August 10-11, 2013

Lava Hot Springs is a friendly, vibrant community rich in natural resources. Long before white settlers discovered the natural, odor-free mineral waters here, the Bannock and Shoshone Indian tribes gathered here to bathe, rest, and worship. For centuries, the Indians paid tribute to the Great Spirit for the curative powers of these springs and set the area aside as a neutral ground to be shared in peace by all tribes.

Traders and trappers arrived in the early to mid 1800s. Bob Dempsey set up a trading post, befriended and became champion of the Native Peoples, and married Chief Tendory's daughter Margaret of the Lemhi tribe. The settlement that is now Lava Hot Springs was originally called Dempsey.

The State of Idaho began developing the hot springs in 1911 and continues to administer this natural resource for all to enjoy.
