Sweet Springs is a city in Saline County, Missouri, along the Blackwater River. The population was 1,484 at
the 2010 census.
Known early on as Claysville, Sweet Springs began as a stopping place for pioneers who were making their
way across the Missouri River. The town's first settlers came from Kentucky in 1817; it was incorporated in
1832 and renamed to Brownsville in 1838 in honor of the man who owned the land on which the village
stood.
Soon after, a minister passing through discovered his ailing wife's health was restored after drinking from a
local spring. He bought the land the spring was located on and soon the water was famous, with visitors
coming from far and wide. The name "Sweet Springs" became synonymous with the town, and the name was
changed from Brownsville to Sweet Springs in 1887.
