Circa 1857 is not your average antique store. Listed in Southern Living Magazine as the best local store in Baton Rouge, Circa 1857 is certain to please. No other store is quite the same.
With nearly 5,000 square feet jam packed of fine antiques, vintage treasures, and other decor, Circa 1857 is a funky jewel in Mid City Baton Rouge. Owned by Garrett Kemp, who purchased the existing business in 2016 when he was 21 years old, the store features a maze-like layout with booths and stalls that houses over 30 dealers and artists.
Originally, the building, which is on the corner of 19th St. and Government St., was a pharmacy built in 1920. The building was purchased and renovated in the early 2000s, and has been home to Circa 1857 since.
