Opened in 1885 to take
advantage of the discovery of healing mineral waters beneath the
town of Okawville, the Original Springs Hotel has enjoyed a long
and colorful history in downstate Illinois. Catering to the
needs of those who came seeking out the mysterious waters, the
hotel has seen thousands of visitors over the years and many of
them have left a tangible presence behind! A number of deaths
have occurred in the hotel over the years, including the suicide
of Ben Scheirbaum, the son of former owners, who killed himself
over a bad marriage. Another former owner, Tom Rogers, was found
dead in the closed down hotel in March 1962.
