- This popular roadside attraction offers a great photo opportunity for tourists. The 170-foot-high catsup bottle was originally built as a 100,000-gallon water tank in 1949 by the Brooks Catsup Company. The landmark was scheduled for demolition, but a group of citizens saved the tower in 1995 by forming the Worlds Largest Catsup Bottle International Fan Club and Preservation Society. Tourists now visit the site, which is brightly illuminated at night. T-shirts, caps, refrigerator magnets and postcards are available at local stores. The bottle is located 12 miles east of St. Louis.
