It was the real thing

Coca-Cola has been an American icon for several decades and for a while was bottled locally in Goshen. If you went to school in Goshen or the surrounding area in the 1950s or so you may recall taking a field trip to see the Coke bottling plant near the railroad tracks and just east of where the State Road 15 railroad overpass is now. The bottling plant was closed in the late 1950s or early 1960s and is now used by another business.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
