The Apothecary served local customers, including the Washingtons and Robert E. Lee, between 1792 and 1933. The shop was transformed into a museum shortly after its closing and visitors can still view the original ingredients, products, and documents left behind by this 141-year-old family business.

This is a small museum. It is a completely preserved pharmacy that operated for over 100 years. We found the tour interesting and informative. Our guide was friendly and answered our questions. A definite must see for Old Town

People used to take nearly anything to alleviate the symptoms of what ailed them! Seriously bizarre botanical ingredients used to compound old school "medicine". Jessica was our guide and we enjoyed the tour. Also, very happy we live in 2017, not 150 years ago!

Very interesting tour. The upstairs of the apothecary is just like it was. You can't touch anything but there's a lot to see.
