Berkeley Springs…

In 1776, Washington’s family and friends drew up a plat of 134 lots, named the streets, and incorporated “The Town of Bath” invoking the renowned English spa. Yet the magic of the springs prevailed, and the town and surrounding area are known around the world by their name  Berkeley Springs.



Bathing in the springs has been popular since before the days of George Washington.


The Berkeley Castle, an ancient fortress home to the Berkeley family since their ancestor, Robert Fitzharding,  in the late 12th Century.
