Coca-Cola Was Invented At This Old, Charming House In Georgia From The 1800s
On a quiet street in Columbus, Georgia sits a charming little house that holds tremendous history. The Pemberton House as it is known, is a small Greek revival-style cottage that was occupied by John Stith Pemberton from 1855 through 1860. Pemberton and family lived in this house on Seventh Street, which holds an important place in history for many. Why you may ask? Because Pemberton was the originator of Coca-Cola, and the historic house contains the keys to his secret concoctions and early conceptions.
