Ozark Bathhouse on Bathhouse Row.

The Caddo, Quapaw, and Choctaw tribes lived in or visited the area during the 1700s and 1800s. The edifice pays homage to their lasting influence. The owners named the bathhouses for the Quapaw Indians, and incorporated an Indian head design over the entrance. The towering building towers over Bathhouse Row.

Compared to its neighbors, Superior Bathhouse has a modest appearance. Its owners emphasized a therapeutic program and interior rooms where marble and brass fostered a hygienic environment. Known for "superior" service to patrons, it far surpassed the the experiences of travelers to early bathhouses.
