Moor Mud Baths Receive a Reprieve

The Waukesha Preservation Alliance is reporting that the City of Waukesha Common Council voted to deny a Waukesha County request to demolish the old Moor Baths resort/hotel, also known as the Grand View Hotel. The county has used the old hotel as office space but found the annual upkeep expense to be excessive. Requests to demolish the structure and sell the land, including a golf course, to developers have been proposed for several years.

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.
