Long Description:
From Roadside America, we learn that:
In 1931, angels came to William Avery Houston in a dream and convinced him to dig a well on his property. The water that came out of it cured his kidney disease, and was delicious, too! The well is open to the public -- bring your own container, pay by the honor system (25 cents per gallon).

Address: 1005W Old AJ Hwy, New Market, TN.
There are "Houston" signs to guide you. The well discharges into an old heated block building, which is like a small greenhouse. Parking available in back. Visit during daylight hours only. Official price has doubled to 50 cents per gallon, filling your own container. Or take a drink at the water fountain.

The novelty of this place is reading the old newspaper articles and having a refreshing sip during your road trip through this area.
