About five minutes drive north of Bluefield, WV is the town of Princeton, WV, which has had a fairly long history of bottling starting in 1906 with the Princeton Bottling & Ice Works, and including such interesting strange birds such as the Princeton Motors Company which included a bottling department at the back of their garage in 1914. This history would continue with the Chero-Cola Bottling Company in the early 1920’s, and finally the longest lasting company, H. P. Hunnicutts’ Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company which lasted from 1939 until 2004, and is still distributing the brand as of this writing.
