This office/home is on of the most interesting historical places I have been. the family saved everything. One of the daughters was an accomplished photographer and her photos are incredible. The tour is affordable and our tour guide Jarrett was very engaging. Please stop by.

We visited during the "candlelight tour of homes". The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly and took the time to answer questions. I am astounded at how well preserved the doctors office was. A fascinating backstory ! Well worth the visit if you are history...More

This house consists of four rooms that are packed with history. It was fascinating to see and read about the items in this doctor's office. The tour guide was very knowable.

This teeny tiny building isn't worth the 10 minutes it takes to walk in and out. You won't miss anything by skipping it. Spend your time on Main Street, a winery or the riverfront. If you decide to go take a mask or at least...More

Not bad but not very substantive office treatment room and upstairs bedrooms. Guide was reading cards during entire presentation. About we hat you may expect for $4 per person. Not horrible just a little light

Dr. Hutching's office is an unusual facility in that it captures what the good doctor's office would have looked like while it he was practicing. There are artifacts to help the site seem alive and real, but I haven't seen much new. Do we already...More

Very short tour. Lots of old medical items and instruments. If you are in the medical field, you will enjoy it.

This was a very cool 19th century doctors office. The hospital room was kind of creepy, and the real skeleton in the box was unexpected. Also great tour guide
