Vichy Springs (formerly, Ukiah Vichy Springs[1] and Doolan's Ukiah Vichy Springs[3]) is an unincorporated community in Mendocino County, California.[1] It is located on Sulphur Creek 3 miles (4.8 km) east-northeast of Ukiah,[3] at an elevation of 801 feet (244 m).[1]

Although previously used by the local Native Americans,[4] the first westerner to discover the hot springs at this location was Frank Marble, in 1848.[2] The springs at Ukiah Vichy resemble the more famous Grand Grille Springs in Vichy, and like the springs in Vichy the waters of the springs are alkaline and carbonated.[2][5] In the 1850s William Day founded the Ukiah Vichy Springs Resort, taking advantage of the 19th-century revival of hydrotherapy.[2] By 1892 the resort was known as Doolan's Ukiah Vichy Springs.[5] Visitors included Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Harrison, Jack London, Teddy Roosevelt, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Mark Twain.[6] As one of the oldest continuously-operated hot spring resorts in the state, Ukiah Vichy Springs has been recognized as California Historical Landmark #980.[2][4]

A post office operated at Vichy Springs from 1893 to 1936.[3]
