Known for its natural hot springs, Murrieta Hot Springs was once a health spa and resort owned by Fritz Guenther. Guenther, a German immigrant, moved to New York with his brother after escaping the Franco-Prussian War. In the year 1902, after moving cross-country, Guenther purchased Murrieta Hot Springs. In the following 30 years, the Guenther family developed the Hot Springs into the ideal world-class resort and spa. In the mid-1900’s, Guenther sold Murrieta Hot Springs. Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa purchased the resort in 1995.
