This 1840's white frame building was the medical office of Dr. John Jay Terrell. It was moved here in 1987 from Rock Castle Farm in Campbell County and has been restored to recreate medical science in the era of 1860 to 1900. These exhibits represent both the primitive conditions of Lynchburg's Pest House during the Civil War and a typical country doctor's office as would have been used by Dr. Terrell following his Confederate medical service.

You are invited to see and hear these stories by taking a self-guided tour of the museum, looking through all the windows and doors as you circle the building.
