During this guided tour you will hear stories and participate in interactive activities to experience what it was like for the country doctor. Step back in time when country doctors were the sole providers of service for every illness and medical procedure needed. Discover how they hand-crafted the medicine for their patients before there ever were community pharmacies. While touring through an actual country doctor's house, you will find over 5,000 medical artifacts with some dating back to the 18th century and many volumes of historic texts gathered from across the nation. Take selfies with their collection of old cars and horse carriages. This was their source of transportation when making house calls. The Country Doctor Museum is the oldest museum in the U.S. dedicated to the history of America's rural health care.
