Coca Cola building makes Virginia landmark list





Virginia has added 25 listings to its landmarks register, a catalog of historic sites and districts.

The latest listings include three former Confederate camp sites and two historic bridges. One includes the High Bridge, which spans the Appomattox River between Cumberland and Prince Edward counties.

Among the unusual listings is the Winchester Coca-Cola Bottling Works, a familiar sight along U.S. 11. The Art Deco plant was built in 1940 and operated for 36 years as a bottler and distributor.

Other additions include Clark Hall at the University of Virginia, Civil War camps in Prince William and Stafford counties, and the Commerce Street Industrial Historic District in Petersburg.
