The Marshall family bought the ranch in 1907 and built the first pool. The warm water was often used for Mormon baptisms. The Marshalls joined forces with the Evans family and worked through the winter of 1929 to build the resort. Since then the resort has been operated by many families and has recently been upgraded by current owners. This site is just north of Franklin County, in Bannock County.
