About
Explore 200+ years of rural living as we preserve the agricultural way of life in New Hampshire. Discover agricultural practices and important contributions of country doctors. Interact with the landscape settled by the Remick family in 1790, whose generations included father and son country doctors—the Drs. Remick—who served the local community for a combined 99 years. As a working farm, the animals and buildings are an integral part of the Museum. The story of the farm comes to life as you tour the property, engage with farm animals, and witness daily activities and chores. Take in gardens and walking trails. Tour the Capt. Enoch Remick House (on the National Register of Historic Places) which contains the original doctors' office and apothecary. Beautifully nestled in Tamworth Village, New Hampshire, a "less traveled" area between the White Mountains and Lakes Region. Open spring–fall; store open year-round (days vary by season, call to learn more).
Duration: 2-3 hours
Meets animal welfare guidelines

Parking was not an issue.
We were greeted by a very friendly lady so gave us a quick overview of the place.
Only a small portion of the house was open but what we saw was very interesting and we enjoyed what we saw.
There is a nice trail around the farm and it goes by a few different farm animals.
Nice short walk on a good day.
So want to come back when the weather is nice and the house is open.
We’ll be back.

My family of 6 was staying up at our family house on Lake Ossipee, and we decided it was time we try visiting the extremely inexpensive Remick's. The farmhouse was quite a set up with little exhibits and write-ups documenting the history of the farm and Remick and his family, and we got to see a number of people sewing and knitting in one of the rooms, which was nice. That tour of history was just the start. We emerged outside and we were immediately impressed with the large pasture land out back. We were invited over to see a goat being milked, and it was very cute. My kids were even able to help milk the goat! And then we got to see another goat be bottle-fed some extra milk, which was adorable. We then walked around and visited the herb garden where one of the volunteers walked us around the garden, discussing the different herbs and flowers, and everyone just loved that. We visited with the hogs and goats and other animals, and then we took a half-mile walk around the whole property down a trail that encircled the different fields. That was truly enjoyable, and when we got back, we paused at a couple of the old buildings and then ate a lunch under a tent with picnic tables. Overall, a wonderful hour or two at this hidden oasis filled with great people.

My husband and I (no children with us) visited the day before their fall festival. Even though one of the houses was closed (getting it winterized), there was still plenty to see and enjoy. The exhibits are well done and the grounds of the homestead are beautiful.

I would definitely recommend visiting with, or without, kids!

Two adults spent a couple of hours here on a rainy Monday. Excellent visit. The museum you start in was where the country doctor and his wife lived on the second floor. Very interesting decor. Looked familiar to me from growing up in the 1950s. Other interesting exhibits on the first floor. The day we were there, they had two young calves, a rather large rabbit, miniature pony, three adult goats and two kids, all near the main museum. The kids were bottle fed and adorable. Further off we could see sheep, geese and a barn that had cows but was too wet out to walk to through the rain.

There is a trail to follow around the property that would be great on a nice day.

We would definitely have spent more time here on a non-rainy day.

Also, the building that held the doctor’s actual office was not yet open for the season, so we missed that.

We’re so glad your group stopped in, despite the rainy day, and appreciate your thoughtful review, Chris—thank you! It sounds like Doc and Marion’s apartment was a fun memory trigger for you, as it is for many people. We hope you can visit again when the Captain Enoch Remick House is open. Happy travels!

We had read about the father-son country doctors who doctored in their little community for a total of 99 years, but we stopped in Tamworth just because it was a quaint community & happened upon the museum accidentally.
As adults, we didn't need to go learn about caring for the farm animals, but we were fascinated by the house itself. There are actually a number of buildings in town that are part of the museum & one could spend an entire day here. It is well worth a stop, & would be a great place for a class field trip!

Thank you for your thoughtful review, Mary K. We are pleased you stumbled upon the museum and to know you enjoyed your “grown-up” visit with us. Our rich history does, indeed, spill out into the village and throughout Tamworth. It’s truly an engaging, yet relaxed destination, and people often tell us they feel they’ve stepped back in time. Come visit with us again!

Calling this a museum is a bit far fetched, but if you're a city dweller interested in the farming and old fashioned country way of life, it should be fun. The young volunteer who gave the guided tour pasture walk was sweet but didn't tell us anything we didn't already know. We wandered around the grounds by ourselves and explored what there was to explore. If you go, take the doctor's house tour as it's the only real bit of history you'll see.

Our visitors’ engagement and enjoyment are top priorities for us and we are disappointed to learn you felt our history was not as well represented as you would have liked; we will take your comments into consideration as we plan for the future. We do hope you were able to take time to explore the Remick Family history on both floors of the Museum Center, and interpretive displays in the Cattle Barn and Milk House during your visit, along with your exploration of the historic grounds.

We were greeted by a very friendly member of staff at the front desk where we purchased our tickets. The farm is not particularly large, but this doesn't stop there being a lot to see or do. The goats are hilarious and are full of energy, and you can use little machines to get some food out to feed them. The pigs are really cute too, but super smelly! Overall we had a lovely time here and was a really nice envirnonment to gander around.

We brought our visiting family here two adults and two children under the age of four we had passes from a local library to bring a family of four. We were met with a very rude reception by Joanne. We brought our family last year consisting of two adults and two young children and had no problem and used our pass. We felt that she was extremely rude to us. It did not give a good impression for our visiting family who had never been here before. So it tainted the entire visit. I think people that are at the reception should be kind and friendly and not rude. It's one thing to not honor the pass, but is quite another to be rude about it. Overall the farm is very nice the young children loved it.

Please accept our sincere apology for making you feel as though you and your family were not warmly welcomed. That is never the intent of our organization nor of those who greet you upon arrival. We know this to be an anomaly, yet understand how your visit felt tainted by it. We regret that this occurred. We hope this misstep on our part will not discourage you from visiting again and appreciate your willingness to mention you had a nice visit, overall. We appreciate your bringing the admission issue to our attention; we will do our best to more helpfully define the parameters of our visiting pass policy going forward. Thank you for your return visit and for your desire to share Remick with your family and summertime visitors. We do hope you will visit again. Wishing you and yours a happy summer!

One of the best places to visit in the area. It is like stepping back in time when you visit the Doctor's house. Farm is a working farm and wonderful to see the animals living the way all livestock should.

We felt like we were transported back in a time machine, to our grandparents home. Everything was just the way it was, from the furniture, dishes, clothing, etc. Finding out how a country doctor's life was, how self sacrificing, was very informative.enjoyed the video as well. We are spoiled in this day and age.
