Provenance note:
The original structure on this site was built for George Bishop, as a factory for furniture and other household goods. Caleb Bradham, inventor of Pepsi-Cola, purchased the property in 1902.
Architectural note:
Simpson designed the larger Pepsi-Cola factory that sat adjacent to the smaller, older Bishop's Mill.
Historical note:
This site remained the headquarters for Pepsi's operations until the company's bankruptcy forced its sale in 1923. Both the Bottling Plant and Bishop's Mill were demolished in the 1970s.
