The museum is housed in the former Aliceville Coca-Cola Bottling plant, which was in operation from 1948 to 1978. Many years ago similar small-town bottling plants were located across the country. Very few escaped the wrecking ball or scrap yard as larger and faster plants became the norm. The Coca-Cola exhibit contains the complete and intact bottling equipment just as it was installed when the building was constructed.
The machinery includes a massive, once state-of-the-art, Miller-Hydro bottle washer and a 20 valve bottle filler and crowner. Some of the machinery, which was relocated to this facility from an older bottling plant nearby, was in use before and during WWII.
Also on display are Coca-Cola employee uniforms, photos, documents, and many Coca-Cola collectibles. See if you can locate a few of the original Aliceville bottles among those on display!
