Alcova


Planning to turn it into a health resort, an eastern company named this town for the hot springs, located in some coves nearby. The resort never came to pass, even though the water was considered very medicinal, because people in Wyoming were thought to bathe only on Saturday nights. The Alcova Reservoir covered the springs in 1933, but the heated water can still be enjoyed in an artesian well below the dam.
