On the hiking train across the street from the National Park Inn at Mt Rainier, can be found a few traces of the early years of the resort town of Longmire, An old hotel once sat near the mineral springs and the springs still looks to be structurally sound. The water flowing there is full of iron oxide and probably not good to drink but in the days of old many health claims were made for spring water. The spring was so well built that it still looks today as it did 100 years ago. The water still flows up and out of the ground naturally as a reminder of different times. Not far from the springs can be seen an old cabin that provided minimalist accommodations for the vacationers of 100 years ago. It is well preserved so that visitors can appreciate what Longmire may have been like in its early years.
