Famed Buckhorn Baths may come back to life

By Jim Walsh | Estate Valley Tribune

Mesa’s historic Buckhorn Baths may soon get a new life by dusting off its original purpose and adding some trendy new ones.

Decades of decay would be erased through renovations that restore the steaming hot mineral baths and the quirky “Wildlife Museum’’ at Main Street and Recker Road. A boutique hotel would open, restoring Buckhorn’s original mission of soothing the sore muscles of achy guests.

A collapsed wall inside a well would be repaired, untapping the 112-degree mineral water that Ted Sliger accidentally found on his then remote property in 1939 –when he and his wife Alice were operating a desert trading post and tired of trucking in water.

But profits are needed to make this retro-dream a reality – the kind that can be garnered by building at least 200 luxury townhouses, with three bedrooms, 1,300 square feet and two car garages.
