2830 North Main Street
Former Coca-Cola Bottling Company
Forty years’ worth of the world’s most popular beverage was processed and delivered to stores and restaurants from one of Cottontown’s more conspicuous landmarks. Situated on a 5-acre tract within the northern-most section of the neighborhood, the plant, which operated from 1952 until 1992, buffered Cottontown from further commercial intrusion and ensured residential vitality. For plant Assistant Manager Patrick Henry Corley, Jr., whose relatives lived just blocks away, the trademarked "Delicious and Refreshing" beverage was said to have offered vitality to his 102-year life! Today, the former bottling facility has been repurposed, like many of the area’s commercial structures.
