A Neat Exhibit

Found this in a book listing 1000 places to visit so sought it out on an icy January day on our road trip. It was very neat to see all the Coke displays through the years.

If you have time, visit this. It does not take a great deal of time and is very informative if you are at all interested in the history of Cocal Cola. We thought the best part was having very good ice cream in the entry parlor.

Before the invention of bottling, Coke was made from an ounce of syrup and soda water in drugstores and soda fountains. Bottling made first home delivery and then retail sale. Lots of Coke memorobilia in addition to the bottling system.

You should see this museum and learn the history of Coca Cola being made accessible to rural areas. They have such great artifacts. It's a must see.

This little museum is small but historic in that this is where Coca-Cola was first bottled by Joseph Biedenharn. A no frills place with some interesting old bottles and memorabilia. You need to drive on to Monroe, LA and see the Coke museum at the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens. A much better and interesting history of Coca-Cola.

Visitors to Vicksburg usually visit the battlefields but if you are in the town, it's worth a tour of this little museum. It's very small so doesn't take long but it's interesting to learn how this iconic drink and brand originated, to see original soda fountains and the original bottling method. There is a good collection of old advertising posters,... More

Cameras are allowed so be sure to bring back a lot of photos; your friends will appreciate seeing the history behind Coca Cola. We showed many of our pix at a Rotary meeting upon our return and friends were amazed to... More

Great history on the place where Coca-Cola was first bottled and the process used. Did not realize that the cola was first only served via fountain soda. Cute little museum with memorabilia. Definitely worth a stop.
