It and several subsequent hotels were destroyed by fire, but the springs grew in popularity through the 1940s. The fourth and current hotel was built in 1939, and was used as a naval hospital during World War II. Today, the hotel is a used as a conference center. The first railroads arrived in 1883, increasing access to local markets and boosting the local fruit-growing industry.
