Sealy's Hot Salt Mineral Well Postcard

This postcard from the 1950s advertises J. R. Sealy's mineral springs resort, Sealy's Hot Salt Mineral Well, in Cottonwood, Houston County. Sealy opened the resort after discovering a subterranean mineral hot spring while prospecting for oil in the 1920s. The resort operated until 2001, when it was destroyed by fire.
