The land on which Catawba Hospital
stands has a history of healing dating back to 1857. That was the year several businessmen from Salem, VA discovered the potential of sulphur and limestone springs on Catawba mountain. In June of 1858, they opened Roanoke Red Sulphur Springs Resort. The 700 acre resort extended up the mountain from the Catawba Valley. It lies ten miles north of Salem on the northern border of Roanoke County, VA. Joe Chapman later bought the Roanoke Red Sulphur Springs resort.
