The Helen Magee Heritage Room contains valuable information about local families, businesses, events, and organizations of early Hot Springs. Because these materials are ‘one of a kind’ they are for In Library use only. There is a copy machine available in the room. On microfilm is every available issue of the Hot Springs Star.
Many folks visiting the area stop in to search for long lost family members, the information is so complete that some of these folks end up staying in Hot Springs for several days doing research.
