Saratoga Springs is all about “Health, History and Horses,” as the local slogan goes. The many natural mineral springs, favored by the original Mohawk Indian tribe for their restorative properties are the only naturally carbonated mineral springs east of the Rocky Mountains. Each of the springs in the area has different mineral combinations and different springs were used in the hope of curing everything from skin problems to gout.
The springs were developed to vie with the most popular spas in Europe and received hundreds of repeat visitors each year who would come to “take the waters.” The first frontiersman to discover the springs was Sir William Johnson, Superintendent of all Indian affairs in the British Colonies, who arrived in 1771. Following behind Johnson, Gideon Putnam was a visionary who built the first tavern and inn in 1802, and from there sprang a string of important hotels and spas that catered to luminaries such as Susan B. Anthony, John Philip Sousa and Oscar Wilde.
Casinos were then built followed by the Saratoga Race Course, which is still considered one of the top ten best sporting venues in the country by Sports Illustrated even though it is the oldest racetrack in the country. The track traces its beginnings to 1863.
