Truth or Consequences is always quiet.
One day I visited a new spa facility opened in 2017.
I was surprised to hear that Truth or Consequences has a new walk-in bathhouse.
When I arrived, I was surprised again; it doesn't look like a very new facility.
The Hoosier Apartment, constructed in 1937 had been spending the rest of life, and opened for walk-ins without being renovated.
To begin with, Hoosier is a slang term for Indiana residents, with nuances such as clumsy or earnest.
According to history, the Lotz's moved from Indiana to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and fell in love with the hot springs in Ojo Caliente, which led them to build an apartment with hot springs in this area.

I visited Ojo Caliente Hot Springs, which was said to be the oldest spa facility in the United States. As the phrase "Things present are judged by things past" implies, was it able to gain new knowledge and insights by ...
Looking closely at the buildings, it was gorgeously decorated.
Hot Springs in the State of Arkansas proves that a hot spring had been highly expected to perform advancement of health before the development of medical technology.
This apartment must have been for affluent people as well.
They open only 1pm to 8:30.
The rate is just $5.00 for 30 minutes per couple (as of this writing).
There are 4 baths for the private use; out of them, 3 are outdoor tubs.
The outdoor tubs seem to be added recently.
Actually, I do not like the plastic Jacuzzi.
Atmospheric indoor Pool
The other bath is inside the building.
The large room can be rent with just $5.00.
They also offered free clean towels.
The tub against the walls is for about three people.
The pipe on the near side is the water outlet, which provides mineral water under the water surface.
The discharge outlet is against walls.
The water input was not so affluent.
It was around 108 degrees F, which I felt a little lukewarm.
On the other hand, I enjoyed the historic atmosphere in the room.
It was really Hoosier hot springs with the gently priced service.
