The Moor Mud Baths harken back to the days when Waukesha was known as "The Saratoga of the West" for its mineral springs. Several mineral bath spas and the mud baths sprang up in the early 20th Century. The Moor Baths/Grandview Hotel resort/hotel operated until 1961. It was used as a college until 1971 when the county moved in.
Reports say demolition would cost $3.3 million while preservationists say the property could be adapted for reuse and save the money. For now, the facility will stand.
