Berkeley Springs Historic Bath Houses are getting almost $ 1 in renovation West Virginia

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.V.- A tourism challenge in Belfast is central to closing for major renovation work.

The Old Roman Bathhouse building was closed on January 1, and it is expected that it will be completed in time for the summer season, Spa Manager Jamie Foltz said.

The 1 January is the projected redevelopment date, and much reform work has been planned, she said.

Upgrading the bath house, which is part of Berkeley Springs State Park, will cost almost $ 1 million, according to West Virginia Western Natural Resources data.

Dates of the building until 1815, and their bath water uses the mineral spring water, which goes at a constant temperature of 74.3 degrees.

It offers a Roman-style steering tubes with 750 gallon tubes with steps to walk into the water, said Foltz.

"Fill the tubes with mineral water from spring and go up to about 102 degrees," she said. "Bath people can be alone, concentrated or as a family. All baths are private.

"We are replacing all the tiles in the tubes and building benches. We will have an accessible tuba as well as an accessible bathroom for people with a disadvantage."

The range of lobbying is being expanded and there will be a new retail area, said Foltz.

Other improvements include the installation of a new boiler and upgrading the building, ventilation and air conditioning system, she said.

"Our new crime system will allow us to fill multiple networks at the time we have done before, we can only complete one at the time. So it will be very helpful to us," she said.

Windows replaces the "correct correction period," and there will also be some brick repairs on the outside, Foltz said.

Main Bathhouse is still open and offers a wide range of spa services, including massages, saunas, baths and showers.
