The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum is noted for its outstanding collection of shop furnishings, apothecary bottles and equipment, many still in their original location.
When the Apothecary closed in 1933, the doors were simply locked, preserving the contents for history. Over 8,000 objects, like mortars and pestles, and hand-blown medicine bottles with gold-leaf labels, were left in place.
The Apothecary has a spectacular collection of journals, prescription and formula books, and other documents with the names of famous customers, including Martha Washington, James Monroe and Robert E. Lee.
