Originally known as Bright Star, the town changed its name to Sulphur Springs in 1871 because of the many mineral springs in the area. The county is a state leader in dairy production, is well-known for beef cattle production, and is a center for national and regional manufacturing. The town boasts more than 10 annual festivals and events. It also is the center of East Texas lake country, providing access to major lakes.
The Romanesque Revival-style, red granite and limestone 1894 Hopkins County Courthouse is the centerpiece of the newly renovated downtown area, complete with a Veteran's memorial and an interactive water fountain for children.
