Twin Inns, Carlsbad: 5 reviews and 5 photos

by matcrazy1

Promotion of Carlsbad was begun by the California Southern Railway (Santa Fe), and by the Carlsbad Land and Water Company. A large hotel was erected near the well, and railway waiting rooms across the country featured posters of the new Carlsbad Spa and its miraculous waters.

The president of the land company, Gerhard Schutte, erected a large home nearby (the place on my pisture), and his business partner, D. D. Wadsworth, built a mirror image of the president's house on the same block 200 feet to the north. The two homes, visible for miles across the coastal plain, became landmarks in the Carlsbad area.
