Trinity Springs was one of the many sulphur springs that made southern Indiana a tourist mecca for people seeking the healing powers of natural spring water. This group of three springs became well enough known that passengers from six trains a day brought people to the depot to be whisked away by horse drawn bus to one of the seven hotels that served tourists at Trinity Springs. When the railroad changed routes the supply of passengers diminished and Trinity Springs faded away. The three springs are still there, about eight miles north of Shoals and one half mile west of Harrisonville, Indiana.
Trinity Springs is an unincorporated town on Indiana State Road 450.
