“Dr. George Adcock Carter, my grandfather, began selling and delivering bottled spring water in the Danville, Va area in 1866,” according to Robert Douglas, owner of Mountain Park Spring Water. Dr. Carter, a Civil War surgeon, was responsible for the care of Union soldiers imprisoned in Chatham, VA. He discovered that the illness rate of the soldiers lowered dramatically when given fresh clean spring water from his nearby farm.
After the war, Dr. Carter and his son opened Carter’s Spring Company, a bottled water delivery business that flourished from 1866 until the 1970’s.
In 1974, I moved into an older home in Winston Salem, NC with small children, and discovered that my tap water was over the limit for heavy metals such as lead, cobalt, mercury and selenium from the old pipes in the home and neighborhood.
I decided to follow in my grandfather’s footsteps and sought out a water source in Mountain Park, NC, in an area known by the locals as Good Springs. By 1979, I had a prospering bottled water delivery service based in the Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point Triad area of North Carolina.”
