Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum
This apothecary, in service from 1792 to 1933, now houses a museum, in which the wooden interior of a 19C apothecary has been restored. Visitors can see jars from another age, obsolete instruments, such as cupping glasses, but also ledgers from the time, in which names of former customers appear, such as Martha Washington and Robert E. Lee, who came here for their remedies.
