Long Description:
One of many Coca-Cola bottling plants throughout the south, this plant is located in Vicksburg MS, where in 1894 an entrepreneurial candy-store owner saw the future and began bottling Coca-Cola at his store soda fountain for folks to take home and enjoy.

By the 1910s it was clear that bottling Coca Cola was gaining in popularity over going to the soda fountain.

This waymark is for the 1920s-era Vicksburg Coca-Cola Bottling Co. on Washington Street in downtown Vicksburg.
