The Stafford Mineral Springs and Stafford's Wells Hotel are the site of a historic mineral springs hotel resort property in Montgomery County, Mississippi. The property was built in 1890 by Dr. Thomas Washborn and was visited for its supposed curative properties.[2] The property was then developed by Edward Stafford and his partners, who formed Stafford Mineral Springs Company, Limited, and incorporated in Louisiana on May 19, 1892.[3] Prior to 1916 it had well houses, bath houses, guest cottages, a dance pavilion, and gambling hall.[2] Later the Stafford Springs Motor Lodge was developed in the area.[3] The springs were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 8, 2000.
