The purpose of this page is to provide a resource of information and allow collectors and the public to learn more about the antique bottles that were used throughout Florida's history.  It is, and always will be, a work-in-progress.  Contributions and suggestions are always welcomed and badly needed. 

There will probably never come a time when this list is comprehensive.  During the early part of the 20th Century almost every town or community had a bottling plant at some point in its history.  For some towns, the only remaining trace of its existence is a small embossed piece of glass.  “Progress”, natural disasters, and changes in America’s lifestyles have wiped clean any hint of many of Florida’s pioneer settlements.  Each year brings new discoveries of bottles that have not been seen by another human being for almost 100 years.  To complicate our search, hundreds of different manufacturers, brands, and varieties of soda have been bottled within the Sunshine State.    

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy. 


NOTE:
For now, the only towns I've really documented are those in Jackson County (Marianna, Malone, Cottondale, Graceville, and Grand Ridge).  Hopefully I'll have a chance to work on other towns.
