Constructed on-site: 1959The Apothecary Shop represents a late 19th-century druggist's shop. Prior to the Civil War, druggists gathered and dried herbs, grinding, distilling, and mixing them with a variety of substances to create medicinal remedies. By 1900, druggists distributed commercially produced patent medicines to customers looking for cure-alls. The passage of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act marked the end of the local apothecary and the rise of the modern pharmacy.
