Hereford Historical Marker

Title: Town Without a Toothache
Year Marker Erected: 1967
Marker Location: Located at little park on US 385 at 4th and Bennett Streets.
Marker Text:
Hereford's "miracle water" was brought to national fame in 1941 when Dr. Edward Taylor, State Dental Officer, told the American Dental Association that tooth decay was almost unknown here. This ideal situation had been discovered by a local dentist, Dr. George Heard, originally from Alabama. In a cross-section survey, dentists found that few local people had dental cavities. Hereford's mineral-rich water and soil are thought to prevent tooth decay. Demand arose for Hereford water to be shipped all over the U.S. and to foreign nations.

Hereford celebrates its official birthday at 8:00 P.M. September 1st (1898).
