In addition to the hotels and sanatariums, depicted on previous pages, Thermopolis had a number of bath houses and natatoria. It was not possible to swim in the springs themselves due to their high temperature. It was necessary, therefore, to mix cold water in swimming pools inorder to obtain a proper temperature. In addition to the State Bathhouse there was also the Star Plunge still in business and the Washakie Plunge.
