Giant Coke Bottle

A huge Coke bottle sits outside a private home in the little town of Bruceville. Other features are also engaging; I especially liked the license plate fan turned into a windmill, since I collect license plates. There are many additions, such as a telephone pole painted like an American flag.

Giant Coke Bottle

The owner of the Coke Bottle doesn't roll it out much anymore. I think the last time I was down at his house one of the tires was flat. We who live within eyesight of the bottle also enjoy the minature theme park-like playground he's built for his grandkids. It includes an old satellite dish turned into a merry-go-round, a ceiling fan turned into a windmill and a zip line made from something (I don't know exactly what). The merry-go-round looks like an old toy top from years gone by.

And did I mention that you can see all of this for free, even get a picture of yourself with the giant coke bottle. Which is what really gives our little town such a prominent place in American society.

Big, mobile Coke bottle.

Giant Coke Bottle

This Giant Coke Bottle was built in 1949 for the Coca Cola plant in Indianapolis, IN. It was the only one built. It was owned by a private individual who passed away in 1987 and was purchased by a man in Bruceville, IN since that time. He has it on a trailer and rolls it out for special occasions.
