the Pemberton House

11 7th Avenue
Columbus, GA
The original location of this house was on 3rd Avenue. The house was moved to this location in 1969. Pemberton was a pharmacist by trade. To read more about the Pemberton house and the man, click here.

When I went to Linwood Cemetary the other day, I also found the final resting place of John Pemberton. The Coke can was sitting on the wrong stone, but we will forgive the transgressor.

What a sweet little house! And fascinating story — I never even thought of Coke having an inventor! Wow. Pretty cool!

I just drank a Coke yesterday! Glad to know where he resided and now resides.
