Country Doctor Museum Collections
The Country Doctor Museum is the oldest museum in the United States dedicated to the history of America's rural health care.
It was created in 1967 by a group of energetic women from North Carolina, whose initial interest was to build a lasting memorial
for rural physicians. Over the decades, the Museum's collection grew to over 5,000 medical artifacts and many volumes of historic
texts gathered from across the nation. The interpretive range also expanded from rural doctors to include topics such as nursing, pharmaceuticals, and home remedies.
