Mineral Wells

Mineral Wells, city (1990 pop. 14,870), Palo Pinto and Parker counties, N Tex.; inc. 1882. Aluminum products, bottled mineral water, clothing, and pharmaceuticals are produced, and there is gas processing. The mineral water made this hill city a popular health resort in the late 19th and early 20th cent., and oil activity in the area also spurred the city's growth. To the east is Lake Mineral Wells, a reservoir in the Trinity River system.
