Location: Bankhead Springs, California
Bankhead Springs, named for the historic Bankhead Highway, was essentially a suburb of Jacumba Hot Springs, at the Southernmost stretch of Old Highway 80 in California. The most notable landmark was the Bankhead Springs Hotel, shown here in modern times as a private residence. It would be lovely to someday be able to do a tour of the old hotel and take some interior photographs.
