Sulphur springs were discovered here in the early 1800ís, and the water was believed to have great curative powers. Around 1870 a combined hotel and health care facility was erected, and operated successfully for about 35 years. Sir John A Macdonald once addressed a crowd from the balcony. The building was demolished over 50 years ago.
