Over the past 150 years, much has been built near the Diana Bath’s. In 1860, George Lucy built a house and barn on the banks of the brook. He later added a water-wheel powered sawmill and in the 1890’s built a 12-room boarding house for tourists to visit the site. A generation later, Chester Lucy continued to build on his family’s land and added a concrete dam with a water feed, and a turbine system to replace the water wheel that used to power the sawmill.
Once the family no longer occupied the land, the buildings began to deteriorate, which resulted in their removal from the site in the 1960s. But visitors can still view much of the remnants of the old buildings that originally occupied the land surrounding Diana’s Bath
Lucy Brook, the stream that feeds into the waterfall is where the old sawmill operation in the 1800s was located. By the 1940s, the Lucy family had left the land, and the area surrounding sawmill, including Diana’s Baths, was turned into a historic site that is now protected by the U.S. Forest Service. Now a popular family destination, Diana’s Baths has a waterfall with a drop of 75 feet and a number of hiking trails. It's perfect for anyone looking to spend the day out in the great outdoors.
