this was the home of some of the coca cola founders,and has been turned into a museum with beautiful gardens. there is also a little coke building with lots of memorabilia. you can still get a coke for 5 cents.

I love walking around the gardens and relaxing in such lush greenery. The tour of the museum is very informative. It's really not a place for small children, but is great for groups of ladies to visit as an outing.

Tour of the first Coca Cola bottling plant was interesting and entertaining. The gardens were pretty and a great background for your pictures. Well maintained grounds with beautiful plants but a quick walk through is enough.

This is a lovely place, and perfect for Weddings and pictures. I took my wedding pictures here and they came out lovely. It's a great place to bring visitors and a gem in the historic area!

A beautiful home, with much history, take the time to take the tour, the bible museum is wonderful, rich in history, but start your tour when you buy your ticket, do not miss the soda fountain with an authentic soda jerk, and don't forget to purchase your 6oz. bottle coke for a nickel. We had so much fun and the gardens were in bloom and breathtaking. We spent several hours during our visit and could have stayed longer. Definitely worth the time to visit, you will not be disappointed.
