Trinity Springs is an unincorporated community in Mitcheltree Township, Martin County, Indiana, United States.[1] Trinity Springs is 8 miles (13 km) north of Shoals. The community is the site of three natural springs and was a popular tourist destination in the early 1900s; at one point, seven different hotels operated in the community.[2]

A rock outcrop covered in historic graffiti and the remains of a historic swimming pool situated next to a natural sulphur spring are most of what is left of the resort, commemorated by a historic sign at Mustering Elm Park along State Road 450.

Trinity Springs was briefly the county seat in the 1800s.
