History[edit]

The area was the site of hot springs which drew visitors since 1859 when a hotel and bath house was built by William Watts. By 1900 the Faywood settlement was created and named for the developers of the Faywood Hot Springs, J.C. Fay, William Lockwood. A third developer was T.C. McDermott. The post office was moved northeast to Dwyer, but is still named the Faywood Post Office.[5]
