Banff hotsprings have a history that goes back to 1883, when some railway workers accidentally discovered the hot springs water near Sulphur Mountain. It was actually a cave that contained hot springs water. People began coming to Banff for the health benefits several years later. Canadians began to seek out the healing waters and started to travel to Canada more often to collect it. The first commercial companies started to make the springs that we know today. Banff Upper Hot Springs, the last public pool that can be used for relaxation, is located in Banff.
