Concern about our health and how to care for it is an ageless discussion. Come share your family remedies for common ailments—a mustard poultice? Blackberry brandy, perhaps? How about a handful of herbs from the garden? Compare those with the bottles, handwritten prescription forms, and books written by Anoka County doctors from the collections of the Anoka County Historical Society that tell interesting stories of medical history.

Dr. Flora Aldrich, one of the early female doctors in the area, wrote several books of medical advice. Local clinics provided medical care in the years before Anoka County had a large hospital. People took interesting medications in the past as well – would you take pills that had arsenic in them? Learn about these things and more in this fun program!
