Hopkins County, Texas Genealogy and History


The city of Sulphur Springs contains about 5000 souls. It is beautifully situated on the divide between the timber lands and prairie lands, with a good supply of wood and water for all purposes.

Every religious denomination is represented by large commodious church buildings, with a large church membership and some of the ablest divines in the State of Texas. We have as fine legal talent and as forceful bar as is in the state, with many industrial enterprises at a great cost. Fine schools and a healthy city. The moral tone of the town is exceptionally good. With good city and county officials to enforce the law. Two large National Banks that do a big business annually. The merchants and business men of the town are all honest, upright and just men, enjoying the full confidence of the trading public and do a large amount of business yearly. We have electric lights, water works and the best sewerage system in the state. The town is in a healthy, growing and prosperous condition.
