Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 27, 1987):
Saratoga Spa was established in 1909 to conserve and develop Saratoga's springs for public benefit. A leading exponent of hydrotherapy, Dr. Simon Baruch, guided the Spa's development in its early years. The major complex was constructed in the 1930s and includes a hotel, two bathhouses, a swimming pool, a bottling plant, an administration and research center, and a grand Hall of Springs in the European style.
