Name

The Spring has various names. GNIS refers to it as "Hot Spring", with an alternate name "Macfarlanes Bath House Spring" frarm Garside 1979.

The spring is possibly named after Ira MacFarland, a deputy state Engineer in the 1910s and 20s. In 1917, MacFarland obtained water rights to a number of springs including a MacFarland Spring. No location was specified, but he also obtained rights for Brady Springs (near present day I-80?), Stratton Springs (Elko County?), Owen Springs (White Pine County?) and Saw Mill Springs.

There is also a McFarland Spring in Clark County (GNIS), this spring could also be associated with Ira MacFarland.
