Goodsell Museum seeking items for ‘local medicine’ exhibit

The Museum Committee of the Town of Webb Historical Association has begun collecting artifacts and information for an upcoming exhibit, “Medicine Up North”, that will be on display at the Goodsell Museum.

The exhibit, which is scheduled to open on Friday, November 25, will remain on display through October 2012.

The Museum Committee is currently collecting information from residents connected in any way with the local health care industry.

They would also be interested in hearing stories about experiences with local doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacies, and health care treatments.

Those with items to loan or stories to share can call the museum at (315) 369-3838 to schedule a time to meet.

One aspect of the exhibit will feature home remedies. The committee has compiled a list of herbs and how they were used in “cures”. Donations of fresh or dried herbs to add to the exhibit are welcome. Accompanying recipes for herbal remedies would also be of interest.
