In the Stonestreet Museum of 19th Century Medicine
The Doctor will see you now!
Curated by Elizabeth Lay
Opened June 12, 2015
Dr. Stonestreet has something for whatever ails you. The current interpretation features Dr. Stonestreet as a country doctor traveling to make house calls. What will he pack for his patient? Will it be his obstetrics case with everything needed to deliver a baby? Will it be bones and plaster to reset a broken arm, or stitch up lacerations? Will he be performing surgery and need ether and surgical instruments? Come see what’s inside his medical bag. And, while you are visiting, peer into the pharmaceutical cabinet for a collection of 19th century tonics that promised to cure everything from feminine ills, to re-grow hair for men.
