Historic Hood River
DeWitt’s at Collin’s Springs
Researching “Collins’ Spring” led to some head scratching at first. I found it was a popular hot spring at a popular resort located at Collins, Washington near Collins Point on the Columbia. In its day it offered electric light, a bowling alley, a billiards parlor and a dance pavilion. How could I have never heard of it? Turns out it is now safely resting under the Bonneville Pool on the Columbia.
This happy group is with Pansy and Harry DeWitt. The event was Floy Clarke’s “house party.” Pansy dated the image at “about 1915.”
