Mammoth Springs is an unincorporated community in York Township, DuPage County, Illinois, United States.

History

The springs itself opened suddenly in 1861 on the Talmadge family farm, and was used until 1889 for irrigation. A wooden conduit was constructed in 1889 and from 1889 to 1916, before being depleted, the spring supplied all of the water for nearby Elmhurst (including supplying the source water for the Elmhurst Spring Water Company) and Oak Brook (including supplying the source water for the Mammoth Spring Ice Company).
