Originally known as Jeffersonville, Tazewell Virginia has had a fairly long history and much of it still stands. It's bottling history starts out around 1910 with the Tazewell Manufacturing Company, and ends with the short lived Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Tazewell during the early 1960's. I just learned of the possibility that there was an earlier bottling company from who's Ginger Ale recipe W. A. Scott developed his most famous creation Was-Cott Ginger Ale.
