  • Company History

    Though Ozarka Spring Water Company officially began in 1905, our roots can be traced back centuries. Prior to being bottled deep in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, the site of the brand's original source had long been considered sacred ground. Now known as Basin Spring, Indian tribes were drawn to the source for its healing properties. It wasn't until 1856 that the springs were "discovered" by Dr. Alvah Jackson, who claimed to have used its "healing waters" to cure his son's eye ailment. This echoed a much earlier Sioux legend of a blind young Indian princess whose eyesight was fully restored after bathing her eyes in the waters.

    During the Civil War, the waters were used at "Dr. Jackson's Cave Hospital" to care for soldiers. When the war ended, Dr. Jackson began an even larger campaign to market the water. The first "white man" to bottle the water of Eureka Springs, he established a brisk business selling "Dr. Johnson's Eye Water." Over time, the marvels of Eureka Springs became known throughout the state and quickly the town became a vacation destination as well as a place to simply come for a drink of what was called the "liquid cure." As the town's notoriety grew, so did the popularity of the spring water. Although OzarkaŽ Brand Natural Spring Water is no longer sourced from Eureka Springs, you can enjoy its great taste throughout Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and portions of Tennessee, Missouri and Kansas.



    OzarkaŽ Brand Natural Spring Water is sourced from various east-Texas springs located in 7,200 acres of woodlands in Henderson, Walker and Wood counties. Beneath this beautiful countryside, the rocks are composed mostly of silica - remnants from when the seas retreated from the area during the Cretaceous Period approximately 80 million years ago. Because silica does not dissolve easily, the water from our spring sources is relatively low in mineral content, which is the reason for Ozarka's refreshing great taste. We continue to review our current sources and occasionally seek new sources that meet our natural spring water requirements and standards.
