The Bedford Springs Hotel was used by U.S. President James Buchanan as his summer White House and was the site of the summer sessions of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1857 to 1861.[4] The accompanying golf course was designed by Donald Ross in 1924. The hotel was used by the U.S. Navy as a radio training school during World War II and was also used to detain Japanese diplomats captured in Berlin, Germany.
