Summary expansion
The Gilman family purchased the Relief Springs Hotel in 1913 and developed it into a well-known hot springs resort boasting four main springs--black sulphur, white sulphur, soda, and lithia. To supplement the hotel built in 1888 by the original owner Sidney Branch, the Gilmans built a large 50-room hotel annex in 1920-1921, and in response to public demand, added private cottages as well. According to Steve Lech, author of Resorts of Riverside County (Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, c2005, paage 79), "Gilman's started out offering the American Plan wherein guests received their meals in a more traditional sit-down environment, this changed in 1922 when the old way was dropped and a cafeteria was added." A new bathhouse was completed in the mid 1920's. The photographs, perhaps taken by one of the guests, present views of the dirt road leading into the resort, and a sign advertising "Gilman's Relief Hot Springs Cafeteria and A La Carte Dining Room," as well as shots of the buildings of the resort--the original hotel with annex; main bathhouse; cottages, and the white sulphur spring bathhouse--and surrounding hills
