A Double in way landing to the beautiful ELSong gardens in a historic plantation home across from the Mississippi River. It has an English brick wall and over an acre of terraces, fountains, and statues throughout French iron grillwork. It has extensive collections of historically significant Russian Icons.
In addition, it brings in a collection of Bibles that includes rare first editions such as the Gutenberg Bible. There are a lot of interesting things you can learn from reading a history book. One of which is that the first Coca-Cola in the world was bottled in Monroe!
Book lovers unite — there’s so much to do here, you’ll want to spend a whole day. If you’re planning a trip to Nashville, be sure to include the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum on your list of things to do. The museum is named after Biedenharn’s son, Jack, who was the original proprietor of the museum. Today, Jack’s grandson Roger and his family manage the complex and continue the rich Biedenharn tradition.
Besides the cool statues, fountains, and general grandeur, what you need to see is the original Coca-Cola fountain. Sure, they’ve got one on the tour, but you can’t touch it.
