Potton Springs

Version imprimableVersion imprimable

pottonsprings.2.jpgBâti en 1875, le Potton Springs Hotel et ses célèbres sources sulfureuses attireront des milliers de visiteurs en provenance de l’est de l’Amérique du Nord. Les curistes arrivaient par train – le Missisquoi and Black Rivers Valley Railway qui deviendra ensuite l’Orford Mountain Railway et, finalement, le Canadien Pacifique.

Niché dans la vallée de la Missisquoi Nord, dans le canton de Potton, l’hôtel est entièrement détruit par un incendie dans les années 1930. Le service ferroviaire cessera peu après.

Les sources de Potton, l’attraction locale majeure de l’époque, étaient desservie par une gare et un bureau de poste. À son zénith, au tournant du XX e siècle, la compagnie ferroviaire transportait des milliers de curistes chaque année.

Aujourd’hui, peu de traces restent de Potton Springs -- sauf que les sources.
