Pemberton Place was named for John S. Pemberton, the pharmacist who created Coca-Cola® in 1886. This 20-acre site in Atlanta, Georgia is home to the World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium. May 2014, these two attractions will be joined by The National Center for Civil and Human Rights. The land for the Georgia Aquarium and The Center was donated by The Coca-Cola Company as part of its long commitment to downtown Atlanta. Built into Pemberton Place are five acres of beautiful public access green space for everyone to enjoy.
