Mt. Clemens has been known as Bath City USA for more than a century. People flocked to Mt. Clemens to soothe their bodies in the healing mineral waters of the Michigan Basin. The discovery of the healing properties of the waters was first noted by Dorr Kellogg in 1870. Through knowledge that the sea water had relieved his eczema, he turned to the waters of Mt. Clemens to soothe his diseased skin. After a series of baths he became cured. The first bath house, "The Original", was built in 1873, and had a well that could produce 1,000 barrels a day of water. Visitors and residents alike took to the baths, and the hotel & bath house industry took off. The last bath house providing mineral baths, The Arethusa, burned in 1976, ending the bath era of Mt. Clemens.
The historical bath houses have been all but forgotten, but the history lives on. The highly concentrated minerals found in Mt. Clemens waters exceed that of any body of water in the world. The only well left in town is owned and operated by Mineral Essentials®. They provide products utilizing Mt. Clemens water as their foundation.
