The Biedenharn Museum and Gardens is known for its backstory involving a tradition of generosity, which started with Mr. Joe Biedenharn, who developed an idea of taking Coca-Cola out of a fountain and putting it in a bottle so that the people who are not able to go to town to visit his shop can still enjoy the drink. He had a daughter named Amy-Lou who shared her vocal talent with audiences in concert halls across the county and in Europe during her 10-year career.
When she returned to Monroe, she started developing her love for gardens, Bibles, Classical music, and so much more. She created the Bible Museum, the El Song Garden, and the Emy-Lou Biedenharn Foundation.
Through the Museum, the foundation is able to continue this same spirit of generosity by establishing programs. With a historic home, a formal garden, a Bible museum, and Coke Museum, there are many things that the site offers to visitors. This includes a replica of the soda fountain, a collection of vintage signs and a model of a Coca-Cola delivery truck, historically important Bibles, and a mansion interior boasting of crystal chandeliers, furniture, and antiques.
