Warm Springs: Charter of the Warm Springs Valley Company, [1890]

Signed and sealed on October 26, 1889, the Charter states the purposes of the Warm Springs Valley Company. They include acquiring, improving, and operating the Warm, Hot, and Healing Springs; to engage in merchandise; to acquire and operate the turnpike road between the springs; and to borrow not more than $300,000.

An amendment to the charter indicates that on November 30, 1889, a certificate of incorporation and charter was granted to the Company. The said Company organized on Dec. 13, 1889 and quickly acquired the ownership of the Warm Springs and Healing Springs with the anticipation of acquiring the legal title to the Hot Springs.
