Hot Springs of Arkansas Chapter

HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS

Steaming hot springs

Organized April 4, 1912

Chapter History

The Hot Springs of Arkansas Chapter was organized April 4, 1912, by State Regent Mrs. Julia McAlmont Noel and interested ladies working together to have twelve charter members. When Hernando DeSoto visited this site, he found that the Indians were already seeking relief from the stress of their lives by retreating to the "valley of the vapors." The source of these vapors were 47 hot springs flowing from the west base of Hot Springs Mountain. The chapter name was derived from the group of hot springs responsible for the name of the city in which it was organized.
