Stafford Springs, Mississippi is an unincorporated community located in Jasper County, Mississippi, United States, along U.S. Route 11.[1]

About 42 miles south of Meridian, it is the current location of the Stafford Mineral Springs (once considered to be part of nearby Vossburg) which thrived during the early 1900s.

Stafford Springs came to be named after a Confederate veteran who settled near the town of Vossburg following the Civil War, Captain Edward W. Stafford.[2]
