Quapaw Bathhouse

Quapaw Bathhouse from the south end on a sunny day with a deep blue sky. The Quapaw Bathhosue is a white stucco structure with a red tile roof and a mosaic tiled dome in the center of the roof.

The mosaic tiled dome of the Quapaw Bathhouse makes it the most striking building on Bathhouse Row today.
