Confederate Corners (formerly, Springtown and Spring Town) is an unincorporated community in Monterey County, California. It is located 2 miles (3.2 km) south-southwest of Salinas, on California State Route 68. The elevation is 52 feet (16 m).

Originally Springtown or Spring Town, the place was named Confederate Corners after some Southerners settled there in the late 1860s.

The place is the inspiration for the fictional small town "Rebel Corners" in John Steinbeck's novel The Wayward Bus.
