Very cool photo op from several different views. You can access the bottle from a small driveway but you can't see it very well. Easy to find, if you are driving south out of Collinsville. you see it all of a sudden as you go around a curve. Neat approach. Busy street. so be careful when you pull over to a parking lot or side road.

Catsup Bottle and building demoliton.

World's Largest Catsup Bottle

The Catsup Bottle site is undergoing some big changes. The new owner (Mississippi River Construction Co.) is razing -- instead of restoring -- the original factory buildings, some of which date to the 1890s. The demolition is taking place to create a parking lot.

The World's Largest Catsup Bottle will be spared. The new owner says it loves the Catsup Bottle, and that the changes will help bring the property back to life.

Use GPS to find if coming into town on I-55. You cannot access the bottle [directly], but there are two close industrial parking lots which provide a good view.

Catsup Bottle.

Drove up here from Chain of Rocks bridge. Nice little town and a good spot on the side of the road to pull over for photos. Wouldn't make a trip just to see this, but if you are in the area...
