Truing of the Ring by GlassHouse-1 Truing of the Ring by GlassHouse-1

The truing of the ring, was a common practice for newlywed brides having just been hitched at Bedford Springs in the 1800's. The new Mrs. would test out her husband’s purchase for authenticity and if the stone in her ring made an etching on the window pane, she knew that the diamond was true. 

In 1806 The Stone Inn, the first of the hotel's buildings was constructed from stone located on  mountain across from the resort.  One of the first indoor pools in the nation was built at Bedord Springs, complete with mineral water-fed swimming pool, solarium and hydrotherapy rooms.
