The Country Doctor Museum

Our History Collections is proud to manage The Country Doctor Museum. Located in Bailey, NC, The Country Doctor Museum honors the work of rural health care providers by collecting, preserving, and interpreting medical artifacts that date primarily from the mid 19th century through the early 20th century. In addition to two 19th century doctors’ offices reconfigured to house the medical collection, the Museum facility includes a medicinal herb garden, a carriage house, nursing and sick room displays, and a gift shop. Through guided tours, education outreach and exhibits, the Museum offers insight into the history of rural health care in America.
