Get Lost In The Enchanting Biedenharn Museum & Gardens In Louisiana

The Biedenharn Museum and Gardens is one of the most incredible hidden gems of Louisiana. Built in 1913, it served as the home of Joseph A. Biedenharn, who is credited with being the first person to bottle Coca-Cola. While he did not bottle it there (he bottled it in 1894 in his hometown of Vicksburg), he did make quite the name for himself during his lifetime, along with his daughter Emma Louise.
Today, the home has been turned into a museum (well, a few museums actually) and the entire spot is surrounded by some of the most incredible English gardens in Louisiana.
The Biedenharn is open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Tuesday – Saturday, and admission for both the garden and the museum is $7. If you just would prefer to do one or the other, then it’s only $4. For more information, visit its website.
