Bubbling Up Podcast Episode 2: Kris Hanson, Evans Plunge Mineral Springs

Welcome to the new Bubbling Up podcast, coordinated through the Hot Springs, SD, Area Chamber of Commerce. Each episode will feature some of the voices from around the Hot Springs and Southern Black Hills of South Dakota, including local businesses owners, non-profit volunteers, community leaders, and simply anyone with an interesting story that adds to the fabric of our community.


This episode’s interview is with Kris Hanson, facility director of Evans Plunge Mineral Springs, the oldest commercial attraction in the Black Hills and the home of 13 naturally warm mineral springs that made Evans Plunge the world’s largest naturally warm indoor swimming pool for generations. We talk about the challenges and successes since the City of Hot Springs’ purchase of Evans Plunge, re-branding the Mineral Springs, and becoming part of a legacy of shared memories that dates back 128 years.
