  Carlsbad went to a bankruptcy auction in 1917 . . . . . . but re-opened in 1918.



Dry Ridge, Kentucky tried to change the town name to “Carlsbad” in 1911, but the Post Office Department denied the change.  Read more. A second account.
The 1927 Dry Ridge fire took out the Carlsbad, and much more. Stories from the first day and the second day.
After the fire, the property is bought by a Walton attorney in 1929. We note that the attorney was the bankruptcy trustee in 1917, above. The business is re-opened in 1931.
Chemical Analysis, done on the water, by UK in 1931, is here. A little background on the Carlsbad mineral well is here.
