Richard Oliver, first postmaster of Oliver Springs, then known as Winter's Gap, changed the direction of the town development for the remainder of the century when he began to actively promote the healing properties of the mineral springs. To handle the increasing number of guests, he built a large, 35-room brick hotel. This first inn, built between 1830 and 1832, attracted guests from around the region and beyond.

In 1826, Richard Oliver became the town's first postmaster. The town was renamed Oliver's Springs in his honor. The town's name was briefly changed to Poplar Springs, and then to Oliver Springs. Oliver provided mail service from his 35-room mansion, which also served as an inn. He was the first to develop the commercial potential of the mineral springs. He would transport his guests between the springs and the inn. During the Civil War, the inn was used as a hospital by both sides. Find out more history at the wikipedia link to the left.
