Plant City building demolished
The old Coca-Cola plant on E Baker Street and Pennsylvania Avenue has officially been destroyed. Demolition began on June 19, bringing an end to a building that had been part of Plant City’s history for nearly 80 years.
Originally a Coca-Cola business, the beverages were delivered by a wagon drawn by a gray mule driven by its owner, J.W. Henderson, according to the Quintilla Geer Bruton Archives Center of the East Hillsborough Historical Society.
Local author writes book
