Sand Springs is a natural thermal spring which rises from 4,500 feet below Williamstown. In addition to bottled spring water, at one time, they made Ginger Ale and a recipe book to go along.
Dr. S. L. Lloyd started the bottling operation, creating ginger ale and other beverages, when he purchased the property in 1893. The bottling plant closed in 1958.
