Before penicillin, Marlin mineral water was sought after by many people. Several professional baseballs teams would come here to soak in the water at bathhouses. Many people still use the water for various aches, pains, wounds, etc. It does appear to have healing effects.

While visiting Marlin I stopped in at the Chamber to see the mineral waters....pretty disgusting. Some old fountains and container-filling spots there, but I wouldn't touch it. I'm sure once it was pretty unique and clean, but not worth the stop.

While the site itself doesn't have much besides a hot mineral water fountain and an empty footbath (at least it was empty when I visited), I found it a very interesting stop. Near the fountain are some faded murals depicting Marlin's past as a well-known...More
