Welcome to Historic Benton Hot Springs

One of the oldest surviving towns in Mono County, Benton was once a thriving, silver mining town, with up to 5,000 inhabitants.
It was established in 1852 as a stop over for travellers heading south from the nearby mining towns of Bodie and Aurora.

In 1862, mining began in the nearby Blind Spring Hills and the town boomed. Today, there are a small number of old structures left in Benton,
as well as the cemetery. If you yearn to experience yesteryear, then come and enjoy our interesting buildings, old mining and farming equipment,
and our natural hot springs, while you step back in time to a more gentle atmosphere.
