Erin Springs is a town in Garvin County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 87 at the 2010 census, a decline of 23.7 percent from 114 at the 2000 census.

Remains:

The town began in 1871, when Frank Murray, an Irish immigrant from Londonderry, built a home at this location. He later became a large landowner and cattle rancher, owning 20,000 acres (8,100 ha) of land and 26,000 head of cattle. The community was initially known as Elm Springs, for a large elm tree that grew behind the stage depot. Elm Springs was renamed Erin Springs, in honor of Frank Murray’s sister, Erin Westland.
