1895 Hot Springs
Smallpox Epidemic

“In the spring of 1895, a smallpox epidemic broke out in the national health spa of Hot Springs, Arkansas; a nation-wide panic ensued. Visitors avoided or fled the spa city, and with them the life blood of Hot Springs’ economy. Several factors including immigrant issues, economic conditions, the anti-vaccinationist movement, labor unrest, politics, and a host of weather and fire related misfortunes influenced the local public health response to this epidemic.”
