Worlds Largest Catsup Bottle

Illinois is home to the world's largest catsup bottle. It can be found next to Route 159 south of downtown Collinsville Illinois. The bottle of catsup stands 170 feet tall and is used as a water tower. The catsup bottle was built in 1949 by the W.E. Caldwell company for the G.S. Suppiger catsup bottling plant. The bottlers of Brooks old original rich & tangy catsup.

In 1995 the Catsup Bottle Preservation group saved the bottle tower from demolition. The group restored the landmark roadside attraction to its original appearance. The roadside attraction hosts visitors and tourists to see the bottle every day. In 2002 it was named to the National Register of Historic Places.
