History: Red River Hot Springs: In the summers of 1929 and 1930, Oma Maxwell, Gertrude’s mother, cooked at the hot springs while Gertrude spent most of her time in the pool! Gertrude said she remembered that in about 1929, a piano tuner came up to the hot springs to tune the piano. The reason she remembered this is because when he opened it up, rats ran out of it. No wonder it needed tuning!
