Regarding Deer Park Hotel. The land on which the hotel stood has been subdivided and a number of unassuming homes have been built on some lots. A few of the hotel's cottages, the size of Victorian mansions, still exist on the periphery of the property.
The nearby Boiling Spring provided pure mountain water for the hotel. The spring's water was also bottled and sold by the railroad during the hotel's heyday. Deer Park Spring Water is still sold today, by Nestle, but sourced from a number of springs in various northeast states, including the Deer Park Spring.
