Helena was the first major Anglo settlement in Montana. Just two years after the founding of the city, prospectors found gold 2 miles to the west. Helena survived the rise and fall of the Montana gold rush to become the capital of the state.
Hot Springs is the name of the city and national park in Arkansas. The city owes its existence to the natural hot springs that provided heated water for the resort bathhouses of that brought tourists to the area. Eight of these bathhouses remain as of 2015. It was also home to many illegal gambling casinos until 1967.
