A rare development opportunity in historic downtown Excelsior Springs, Missouri, this commercial acreage is the former site of the Link's Soda & Sulpho Salt Well, the 1st class Hotel Castle Rock, the Ball Clinic, and the Spa View Nursing Home. Located a short 1.5 blocks from the famous Hall of Waters, this vacant land is on a slight rise, giving whatever you choose to build here a splendid view of the restored and growing downtown district of Excelsior Springs.
Excelsior Springs became a destination in the early half of the 1900'S when it was discovered that the springs below held mineral waters noted for their medicinal values. The Ball Clinic was at one point one of the largest employers in Excelsior Springs - until its untimely demise at the hands of a Saturday Evening Post article in 1963 titled The Hucksters of Pain. The shuttered clinic then became the Spa View Nursing Home, until its demolition in 1997.
This 4.43 acre piece of land and its historical significance is now being offered for sale. The possibilities are truly endless for a developer with a vision. The location is ideal for many business types, with its proximity to downtown, as well as the famous and exclusive Elms Hotel and clear sightlines to the art-deco Hall of Waters, all nestled in this quaint and quiet community just a short half hour drive from Kansas City.
