In 1906 the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company was created to distribute the smooth, bubbly taste known as Dr Pepper. Today, that building still stands and is dedicated to a similar mission: to teach the world about the history of the iconic soda, a vision realized by a few devoted enthusiasts. The building became the Dr Pepper Museum in 1989, then the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute in 1997. Today, it is a tribute to the imagination and talent that fueled the soft drink's success throughout the years.
