Opened in 1927 for the Minnesota-based Great Northern Railway, the Prince of Wales Hotel provided an oasis during Prohibition for thirsty Americans. Since these boozy beginnings, the hotel, which overlooks the beautiful Waterton Lake, has survived floods, fire, high winds and even closure. Now a national historic site, the Prince of Wales Hotel receives rightful tribute in High on a Windy Hill. Vivid historic photographs bring to life this grand survivor of the golden age of railway resort development.
