An exhibit showing the practice of medicine in the Piedmont area of North Carolina can be seen at the Mint Hill Country Doctor’s Museum and Country Store. In the early day roots and herbs were used to treat illnesses. Later doctors began to prescribe drugs and administer anesthesia.
On display are an instrument case carried by a Civil War surgeon, a wooden box designed for buggies, basins, and an examining table used by Dr. Whitley. The completely restored Ira V. Ferguson Country Store has been moved to this site. It is furnished with memorabilia from the turn of the century.
The museum is located at 4311 Hillside Drive in Mint Hill. For tour reservations call (704)573-0726 or (704)545-5766. Or, send an email to email@example.com.View Larger Map
