former Dr Pepper bottling plant
Birmingham, AL
The Dr Pepper bottling plant buildings have been restored as Pepper Place. This complex was built in 1931 and consists of seven buildings used by the Dr. Pepper Syrup Plant and the Dr. Pepper Bottling Company. The factory ceased production in 1982. In 1990, the abandoned buildings were transformed into shops, businesses, a farmers' market, and a theatre. The original scales that were used to weigh the Dr Pepper syrup and the vaults where the secret formula was stored are on display. For more, see this website. [map]
