The town of West Baden Springs was originally named Mile Lick. It was renamed West Baden after the first hotel was built there in 1855. The town was the site of mineral springs which attracted guests to the hotel seeking the curative waters. This view of the town is seen from the front lawn of the West Baden Springs Hotel as it looked about 1910.
