Long Description:
This valley, long known by the Indians as "Tah-Ne-Co,"
"The Place of the Hot Waters" and according to
tradition regarded by the different tribes
as neutral ground, was first visited by white men
on September 16, 1541, when Hernando De Soto and his men
camped in this vicinity and were led here by the Indians.
According to records of Roderico Ronjel, Secretary to
De Soto and the "Gentleman of Elvas," who was also
a member of the company, they bathed in the
hot waters and departed October 5, 1541.
