Mission Statement

The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum, one of the oldest pharmacies in the nation, exists today to promote a greater understanding of historic public health issues, inspire people with the values of Quaker founder, Edward Stabler, and engage the visitor in an appreciation of our local and national history by sharing the story of this business and family's profound effect on the community in such diverse areas as education and the abolition of slavery.

Description

The apothecary shop was a family-owned business in operation from 1792 to 1933. The business expanded to include manufacturing and wholesaling in addition to retail. Turned into a museum shortly after going out of business, the site today holds a vast collection the family's unused ingredients, unsold objects, and original documents.
