Crystal Hot Springs was originally named Madsen Hot Springs. It was used by the Native Americans as a camp spot in the wintertime. During the construction of the railroad, the Chinese workers used these hot pools to soak in after a long day working on the railroad. A local beekeeper named Abraham Hunsaker is credited for establishing the town of Honeyville. It was originally called Hunsakerville, but Abraham insisted it be changed, and in honor of his profession, it was renamed Honeyville.
Crystal Hot Springs has been a business since 1901. It is unique to other hot springs because it has a hot spring and a cold spring that come together within 50 feet of each other. Crystal Hot Springs mixes the two springs together to create the relaxing pools you can find there today.
