Johnson Sauna at Sibley Park

Johnson Sauna at Sibley 

"The Johnson Sauna"

Samual Johnson first discovered the medicinal powers of the Sibley Park Hot Springs when he fell in in 1969. Johnson, who had been a long sufferer of skin flakes and Spyrigs Disease, was hospitalized overnight for observation. He was released and told to go home. Johnson did not go home but continued his working at the Old Fly tavern in North Mankato. As the weeks progressed so did the cure of his ailments. Until one day he went to the town square and declared "Yom Kippur, I am cured!"

The town fathers allowed Samual to set up a permenant Sauna for all to enjoy at Sibley Park Hot Springs!
