little history: The mineral springs were discovered in 1781
by James Spears, a Whig, who was trying to escape Tory
troops. According to legend, Mr. Spears lost a shoe in a
water hole. When he returned to retrieve his shoe, he tasted
the water and noticed its strong mineral content. Word of
the spring spread and soon people were coming to taste the
cool refreshing water. Several wealthy plantation owners
built summer homes in the vicinity of the springs. In the
late 1800's Dr. C. R. May advised his patients with stomach
problems to drink the mineral water. When these patients
complained about the strong taste of the mineral water, Dr.
May added Jamaican Ginger to it. In 1903, Dr. May and A. J.
Matheson opened the Blenheim Bottling Company. The building
which houses the bottling works today was constructed in
