Lithia Springs Sweetwater Creek Hotel

Lithia Springs-Sweetwater Creek Hotel
Lithia Springs-Sweetwater Creek Hotel"> During the 1880s people came from miles around to the curative waters of a natural lithia water spring. In 1887 Judge Bowden and a group of investors purchased the springs and commenced bottling and selling the water. Hence, the Sweet Water Hotel was built in Lithia Springs, having 500 rooms. The hotel was so popular that Mark Twain, the Vanderbilts, and several presidents visited the springs.
