It was founded as a mining town in the 1850's. In 1864, a meeting was held to petition the government to stop mining in the town, in order to protect the mineral springs. The motion was passed, and the town began to focus on becoming a boutique spa town.
Today, Hepburn Springs is a desirable and luxurious travel destination to people from around the world, known for its wealth of mineral springs, relaxed and soothing atmosphere, surrounding natural beauty, Edwardian architecture, resorts and retreats, lush forests, and beautiful hotels and cottages to stay in.
