PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The circa 1926 historic Coca-Cola building in Philadelphia may be renovated for use as a warehouse for a proposed Marty Stuart Center.

Community Development Partnership President David Vowell asked Neshoba County supervisors this past week to transfer ownership of the county-owned building to the Industrial Development Authority.

Vowell told supervisors that having the warehouse for part of Stuart's Country Music collection is needed for the project to move forward.

The building most recently housed a furniture store and is currently being used as storage space for the county.

The renovation would be funded through $1 million in state bond proceeds allocated for the proposed Marty Stuart Center earlier this year.

The Coke plant closed in 1985 when the bottling operation was sold.
