Search Bailey North Carolina

County Doctor Museum is the only medical museum in the nation which is entirely dedicated to these family doctors, whose lives inspire today's physicians. A composite restoration of two doctors' offices includes the Dr. Howard Franklin Freeman Office, built in 1857, which comprises the Apothecary Area, and the Dr. Cornelius Henry Brantley Office, circa 1887, which portrays the early doctor's office, with instruments and equipment of the day. In three century-old and two modern buildings, the Country Doctor Museum collects and preserves the medical instruments and tools of pharmacy used by country doctors and the diaries, papers and medical books of these rural physicians. The Museum itself is housed in two small restored 19th-century phys icians' offices moved to Bailey and joined to form a single building.
