Come join us and step back in time with the “Black Swamp Medicine Girls” on February 23, 2016
at the Local History Department, Harmon Room, 6:00 - 7:30 pm. This is a show like you have never seen before. Explore the history of vintage medicine bottles and treatments for such ailments as consumption, quincy, lumbago, rheumatism, bad breath, and gout. Learn about the old medicine show sales pitches and how one-half dollar could buy you a treatment that could cure everything from baldness to curvature of the spine. Medicine shows were popular between the 1850’s through the 1930’s and traveling groups put on performances peddling their miracle cures, elixirs, and devices guaranteed to improve your health.
