White-Sulphur-Springs is a spa city located in Greenbrier County in southeast West Virginia. As of the 2000 census, the population was 2,315 residents. White Sulphur Springs was named for the clarity of the largest spring in the area, the white sulphur spring, which is now enclosed in a domed Doric spring house on the grounds of the city's world-famous resort, The Greenbrier. There is also a black sulphur spring in a second spring house also at the resort. White Sulphur Springs was formerly known as Dry Creek and is also known as the Spa City. The Greenbrier Resort is the town's largest employer. The city of White Sulphur Springs grew quickly in the first half of the nineteenth century and was known as the southern "Queen of the Watering Places." The springs resort first became the standard summer destination for wealthy Virginia low-country residents seeking reprieve from heat, humidity, and disease. As it increased in popularity, the town attracted more and more elite guests from all areas of the country. Today, the Greenbrier Resort remains one of the country's most luxurious and exclusive resorts.
