Collinsville, Illinois

The world’s largest catsup bottle can be found right here in Illinois. In Collinsville, you will find the giant Brooks catsup bottle that stands proud and tall in the air, even though it is actually a water tower. Claiming to be the world’s largest, it is over 170 feet tall and was built in the 1940s. This thing is so popular that it actually has its own fan club (http://www.catsupbottle.com/fanclub.html) and you can join that as well! This is one of those classic stops you have to make if you have the chance, especially in July when they hold the worlds largest catsup bottle festival, which is held every year to celebrate this giant bottle.
