The C. Segelke Building is a good example of the commercial Italianate style. The brick structure was built by Charles Segelke in 1887 as the Columbus Bottling Works and served in later years as the Columbus Coca-Cola Bottling Company. Charles Segelke was born in Germany in 1848 and came to the United States in 1870. He and his three brothers played an important role in establishing bottling companies in eastern Nebraska.
