History of WFLQ-FM
French Lick, Indiana

WFLQ-FM is licensed to French Lick, Indiana, home of Larry Bird and site of the famed French Lick Springs Resort which has two 18-hole golf courses, and the historic West Baden Springs Hotel.

The French Lick Springs Hotel sits on the exact site of Fort French Lick. The name French Lick comes from the French explorers bringing their cattle into the area. The animals would lick the natural salt deposits, thus "French Lick."

West Baden Springs HotelTours are being conducted at the newly refurbished West Baden Springs Hotel.  $30,000,000.00 was spent to bring the deteriorating structure back to it's grandeur.
