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. 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. Prior to 1916 it had well houses, bath houses, guest cottages, a dance pavilion, and gambling hall. Later the Stafford Springs Motor Lodge was developed in the area. The springs were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 8, 2000.
