Text:

This community was named for Blenheim Palace in England, home of the Duke of Marlborough, for whom Marlboro County is said to have been named. Formerly called Mineral Spring or Spring Hill for the mineral springs lh mile E, Blenheim traces its origin to wealthy planters who built summer homes during the antebellum period in this healthy locality.
