Ghosts of Del Monte


Mystery, intrigue… love and romance… a fight to save history… it is all here in Walter Gowing’s story of the Ghosts of Del Monte, known as the Preston Springs Hotel.

Preston, once the mineral water capital of Canada attracted royalty from Europe, N.H.L players and big league baseball players like Babe Ruth to its miracle healing waters.

This is the story about the people who were involved in this explosive activity that makes history so exciting. It is a true account of three hotels: the Kress Hotel, the Sulphur Springs Hotel and the Preston Springs Hotel, as of 2021 all vanished from the scene.
