Founded in 1879, the Salome Hot Springs were built by Rollin Simeon Belknap, who claimed the land with plans to build a resort over the popular tourist location. Salome Hot Springs has long been a landmark of the area since. Famous for the extreme temperatures of the mineral water (185-195F), the spring emits 60 gallons of hot water per minute, which is heated beneath the earth by running close to lava beds. Salome was at one time called the Salt Springs because of its mineral salt content. Archaeological finds and fating have placed Salome's Native American presence back 8,000 years. Though Salome's history has been a rocky one, it remains a staple of the Belknap region.
