Just under a 30 minute drive from the Captain’s Hideaway is the historic ruins of the Hampton Springs Hotel. Built in 1908, the mineral spring was said to have healing properties. The hotel even had their bottling plan and shipped the healing sulphur water nationwide.
We took a drive over the the historic Hampton Springs hotel ruins. This once luxurious hotel boasted the healing power of the sulfur springs. Built in the early 1900s and sadly burnt down in the 1950s. The now historic location is a great place for a picnic and there are hiking trails on the other side of the river.
