The dome roof of the Quapaw Bathhouse is an intricate pattern of mosaic tiles put together by hand. It has stripped tiles with flowers in between, leading to the top, with horses and lion faces surrounding the lower portion.
The mosaic tiled dome of the Quapaw Bathhouse makes it the most striking building on Bathhouse Row today.

Bathhouse History

The Quapaw Bathhouse opened in 1922. It is the longest building on Bathhouse Row, occupying the site of two previous bathhouses, the Horseshoe and Magnesia. Vacant since closing in 1984, it was the first to be leased for adaptive reuse. It reopened as a family-oriented spa in late June 2008.

Today

The Quapaw Bathhouse is one of two locations where visitors can soak in the thermal springs. Quapaw offers private baths, public pools, and modern day spa services. Visit the Quapaw Baths website for more information.
