Free, clear sparkling soda water still is
available in a beautiful Soda Springs
city park, located 2 miles from here.
A prime attraction for more than 160 years, soda
water from these springs was marketed nationally
after rail service reached this resort area in
1882. W. H. Hooper, Salt Lake City's leading
banker and president of Zion's Cooperative
Mercantile Institution, had his summer home
here. He did much to found and promote
Soda Springs and its soda water
industry while serving as Utah's
delegate to Congress.
