Leeches for blood letting! Opium mixtures for colicky babies! Foot-pedal-operated dental drills! Horses and buggies for travel to patient homes! Iron lungs! These are only a few of the ah-ha moments from the tour of the Country Doctors Museum. There's a glimpse into pharmacy operations,...More

Pleasant visit to a restored country Doctor's office. Nineteenth and early twentieth century medical and surgical instruments, a pharmacy, nursing and dental exhibits and buggies with a charming guided tour hourly that takes about 45 minutes. A lovely visit if you're in the area. Hard...More
