Diamond Springs, a village of Morris county, is a station on the Strong City & Superior division of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe R. R., about 20 miles southwest of Council Grove, the county seat. It has a money order postoffice, telephone connections, an express office, a good local trade, and is a shipping point for the surrounding agricultural district. The population was reported as 27 in 1910.

The spring for which the village was named was originally known as "The Diamond of the Plain." It is one of the largest springs in the state and was a well known station on the old Santa Fe trail. This station was robbed by the guerrilla, Dick Yeager, on the night of May 4, 1863, and in the raid Augustus Howell was killed and Mrs. Howell severely wounded.
