description

Summary

Significance: The Rains Bathhouse is associated with events that have made significant contributions to the broad patterns of our history, i.e., early 20th century coal mining in Utah and the western United States. The bathhouse is an integral part of the overall Rains mining operation and the associated Rains community. It is a unique component of the coal mining industry and is the only intact example remaining in the Spring Canyon district. The foundation and basement walls also reflect Italian stone masonry techniques that are the most important architectural contribution of this district. The site retains sufficient integrity of setting and physical integrity to convey feeling and association with its period of historical significance.
