“a best-kept secret in Mono County”
Benton Hot Springs (also, Benton, Old Benton, and Hot Springs) is an unincorporated community in Mono County, California. It is located 3 miles (4.8 km) west-southwest of Benton and 31 miles (50 km) north-northwest of Bishop, at an elevation of 5630 feet (1716 m). The Benton post office opened at the place in 1886. The name honors Senator Thomas Hart Benton, United States senator from Missouri. The town saw its heyday from 1862 to 1889 as a supply center for nearby mines. After the close of the 19th century, the town declined and the name Benton was transferred to Benton Station. Of the springs at the site, one was described in a 1915 book as issuing water at 135 °F (57 °C)
