Bromide Springs & Pavilion
In the mid-1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps built a new stone pavilion to improve access to Bromide Springs. Designed in a rustic style, the pavilion included stone fountains that dispensed bromide, sulphur, and medicine waters. Tanks stored water from low-flow springs and supplied water during periods of heavy daytime use.
