The Simpson Spring Company, Inc., claims to be the oldest bottling plant in the United States. Open since 1878, this bottling company located in South Easton, Mass., remains locally owned and operated.
Simpson Spring bottles spring water, seltzer and soda. In addition to its new soda offerings, Simpson Springs also produces hand-mixed soda made from original recipes with local ingredients. The company offers a self-serve station for people who want to fill their own containers with spring water.
During the 1930s, Simpson Spring was one of the largest beverage companies in New England and produced a signature drink for Macy's. People interested in the history of the bottling company can visit the Simpson Spring museum, which offers free tours.
