Introduction to Sulphur Springs, Texas
Sulphur Springs History
Sulphur Springs received its name from the springs of sulphur water that were abundant in the area before the arrival of the settlers. During that time, Native American tribes frequently set up temporary camps around the springs. When the first settlers arrived, most of them used the land around the springs for setting up their camps as well. Eli Bib, one of the first settlers, set up a store in his cabin and sold food grains, persimmon beer, whiskey, and ginger cake. In the year 1849, Dr. and Mrs. Davis arrived in Sulphur Springs. Dr. Davis's plan paved the route to the establishment of the city in future.
