Housed on the corner of Lang Street and Prospect Avenue in Cobalt, ON, we offer our published titles along with new titles from the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum, the Cobalt Historical Society as well as some we rescued from the old Highway Book Shop before it closed. The selection of pre-loved books that people have brought in is amazing. We literally have a little bit of everything. To see if we have what you are looking for, stop in for a visit. We have information brochures for visitors, and have gained a fair knowledge of the area.
What is this building?
8 Prospect has housed many businesses at this pivotal location throughout Cobalt history. Most commonly it is known as the old grocery store (Tresidder's or Dominion, or the Red & White). As we have time to discover more of the history we will post it here.
How long have you been in business?
White Mountain celebrated the end of its 40th year in business Aug 2022. For most of those years we operated as a home office. In 1996 we started selling books online. (Yes, before Google, before amazon...) We opened our store front at the end of July, 2014 at 50 Silver Street in Cobalt. Our Grand Opening was August 8, 2014. In September 2022 we moved to our new permanent home at 8 Prospect Avenue, Cobalt. It's only a couple hundred feet from where we were, but has 4 times the space. We will be expanding the actual store as time goes on, but it's open now in the front space that's finished.
