Burden Museum and Gardens, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

One of buildings in the Burden museum and gardens

I drive to my work place pass through Essen Lane every day, without knowing there are museum and gardens.

Essen lane is in the middle of Baton Rouge city, Louisiana where museum and gardens locate.

Burden family donated their 440 acres (178 hectares) land to the Louisiana State University (LSU) in 1966.

The university (LSU), then developed the land to be:
- LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens
- Windrush Gardens
- The LSU Rural Life Museum

The modified land is a kind of “window” to observe Louisiana in the past, now days and future for me.


A house of rural life in the past

I saw a house with a rock chair in Rural life museum. Actually, I found many houses have two rock chairs in rural areas in Louisiana current days.

Two rock chairs with small table in the middle. Older Louisiana, usually couple drink a cup of coffee or tea while sitting in the rock chairs in the afternoon. Sound like romantic life.


Flowers in the botanical garden

We could walk through the gardens, may be miles, and find:
- woodland
- wetland
- research facilities.
- rose garden
- herb gardeners
- ginger gardeners
- fruit
- vegetables

Finally, I think that visiting Burden Museum and Gardens is a good start to who eager to know about cultural past of Louisiana, especially who loves flora, fauna and heritage of agriculture in Louisiana.

  1. Scheduled, Evi, for when I go to Louisiana. There a part of the past continues to live, there romanticism nurtured so many stories ... A wise proverb says it: "If you want to know how they are, discover their past ..."

    Huge hugs, Evi, for another interesting article. Thanks!!

  7. Museums are usually boring and this doesn't look like a museum. Looks more like a house with a beautiful garden.

  23. The University certainly put the land they received through donations to a good use. The botanical gardens they created look wonderful and I like they also created a historical rural feeling with some of the land they were given. The LSU Rural Life Museum looks like a great place to visit. I like how they preserved the rural life as it was. Very educating!

  37. I will definitely visit here if I ever make it to the Baton Rouge area. It looks so perfect and picturesque. Many homes in our neighborhood have the southern front porch with 2 rocking chairs and a table. We will eventually get ours for our front porch. The set up adds so much charm to a home.

    Have a great start to the week!
