Mineral springs and site of a settlement. Collier (1902, p. 55), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), notes "Charles McLennan, who with a dog team and Eskimo assistants * * * in May 1900 * * * was the first white man to reach the hot springs." Collier further noted that in September 1901 he found a small settlement at the hot springs. Waring (1917, p. 76), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), referred to this as "Arctic Hot Springs" and noted "A few years ago prospectors built a cabin near the upper spring and a bathhouse over a bathing pool * * *." The name "Serpentine Hot Springs" came into local use and was published in 1951 by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
