Long Description:
The Chalybeate Springs Hotel was built in 1851, and was a watering place, health resort and SPA in the 19th and early 20th century. It is located about one mile northeast of Bedford Borough on Chalybeate Road.

The 56 room complex, now vacant and most recently used as 13 apartments is situated immediately adjacent to the celebrated Chalybeate Springs of Bedford County.

The Chalybeate Springs Hotel is situated adjacent to a series of three springs, one of which is an iron impregnated spring or chalybeate spring, one other being pure or sweet water, and the third is a limestone spring.

According to local history, the springs were used by native American Indians, and other passing early traverlers, most likely as a watering place and an encampment area.

It is also known as: The Chalybeate
