AAA Editor Notes
Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, at Caroline and Amelia sts., interprets Colonial medical practices in a restored 18th-century building. Living-history presentations and demonstrations with costumed guides discuss once-popular treatments for conditions like “female hysteria” and highlight a variety of medicinal and surgical supplies—from leeches to lancets.
