This is the place to go if you need a little blood letting, or if you just want to learn about early medical practices. Don't worry, they won't take any blood. Great tour!
This eighteenth-century building was restored to house the Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, a museum of medicine, pharmacy, and military and political affairs. Dr. Mercer served the citizens of Fredericksburg with medicines and treatments of the time.
The guided tour brings to life the nature of health care in Colonial times, including blood letting and use of leaches. They usually have some live leaches for your examination.
