History & History Related Items

Saratoga Springs is the oldest resort on Utah Lake and was named for the New York resort, Saratoga. It opened on 24 July 1884. It's fame is from the hot springs which keeps a comfortable year-round temperature.

John Beck, from Germany, called his land here Beck's Saratoga Springs. By 1914, it had changed owners several times. At this time it was purchased by the Austin Brothers and Austin and Sons Sheep Companies. They planed to subdivide the area into farms and city lots. The city never really took off and more new owners took over from time to time. In 1950, major improvements were made to the resort to increase the comfort levels. In 1968, a disastrous fire destroyed much of the resort, but the owners rebounded and opened for the season anyway. In the spring of 1968, Saratoga lovers were shocked by a $ 100,000 fire at the resort. Lost in the fire was the main building that housed the indoor pool, dressing rooms, laundry, ticket office, snack bar and gift redemption center. The resort operator quickly had the debris removed, and the resort was ready for its Memorial Day opening three weeks later. Saratoga Springs was incorporated as the 23rd city in Utah County.
