Inscription. The mission style of the Ozark Bathhouse may relate to the claim that Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto visited the hot springs. The building’s twin towers are strictly decorative. On Bathhouse Row, the Quapaw, the Fordyce, and Hale Bathhouses, with their red clay roof tiles, also reflect this Spanish association.

The Ozark’s scroll and shield decorations and classical designs on window planters suggest a relationship with Roman baths.
