Dawson Springs is located in Hopkins County but is not a county seat (unusual for a Main Street City)

Dawson Springs is at the juncture of three counties:  the extreme southwestern portion of Hopkins County, the northwestern portion of Christian County and the southern portion of Caldwell County.

Dawson Springs growth will be driven by various factors, not the least of which is energetic, dynamic individuals who recognize the advantages of life in a community where the past is cherished and where their future can be shaped by their own hard work and imagination.
