Brief History

Abita Springs has long been an attractive and relaxing destination town. In the mid-18th century, a local landowner and physician began promoting the healing powers of the spring waters. Soon enough, an increasing number of curious visitors prompted the development of hotels and restaurants. The railroad arrived in 1887, followed by the now-historic Abita Springs Pavilion which was built in 1888.
