The area now known as Weldon Spring was originally a Spanish Land Grant to John Weldon in 1796. His land included 425 acres and the spring that was there. It wasn't until 1849 when the town was laid out by John McMillan, Jr. that it was called it "Weldon Spring," paying homage to the original settler of the area and his discovery of the spring.
