The First Days of the Bedford Springs
                by William L. Defibaugh P.E.

In an effort to provide an accurate history of the early times and events of this popular and venerable hotel, much research has been done into the early beginnings of the Springs. Countless hours dedicated to the gathering of choice information and facts from hotel guest registers, bank and cash ledgers, hotel brouchures, pamphlets, early correspondence, early deeds, maps, surverys, photos, etc. Perhaps the one magnet that caused so many to race to the Bedford Springs, at first by the tens and later by the hundreds, was the hope that one of the seven springs might provide healing for the many maladies of 18th and 19th humanity.
