Boulder County History: Little left of former spa community near Jamestown

The late 1800s was the era of the spa, in which the leisure class would drink, bathe, and even breathe the vapors of water thought to heal everyone's most obscure ailments. In Boulder County, one of these health resorts was located in the western Boulder County mountain town of Springdale. The town and spa were founded in 1875, two miles below Jamestown, in James Canyon. The 2013 flood, however, all but wiped the community off the map.
