Lots of Coca-Cola memorabilia. Coke was invented in Atlanta and was popular at soda fountains. In Vicksburg it was first put into bottles so folks out in the country could enjoy it too. They've got the equipment used to bottle it way back then!

This is not the Atlanta extravaganza, this is real history where Coke was first put into bottles. The old candy store is filled with coke items and there is a small museum for a small fee which includes the bottling equipment and soda fountain bar.

We stopped in here and were not impressed. It is small and not much to it, sad, when it could be so much more.
