This was a very interesting place to visit. It was like stepping back in time. It only takes a few minutes to stop in and imagine what medicine must have been like long ago.

This establishment was very interesting to visit. It takes you back to the early days of all kind of treatments for ailments. There is a lot of history in this building. If you like history, stop by and see what this place has to offer.

The history of the owners is fascinating; who they were, what positions they held in the town and what they did for the town. I found the archeological dig one of the most interesting parts, and it's happening right behind the building. Loved the little...More
