The tour was very interesting but you could easily become wrapped up in the history of the place and run longer than the estimated 45 minute tour time. I highly recommend McDowell House. My children, 8 and 10, liked seeing all the period pieces and learning the story of medical practices during that time. In fact, they didn't want to leave! The Apothecary was a very neat experience.

Very interesting and well laid out and equipped house/ museum. Thoroughly fascinating story behind the existence of the museum. Tour guide was fairly well informed, but could've given better delivery.

From Our Editors

The McDowell House Museum is the home and apothecary shop where Dr. Ephraim McDowell lived and worked between 1795 and 1830. In 1809, Dr. McDowell performed history's first successful ovariotomy on a Mrs. Jane Todd Crawford, cementing his role in medical history as "The Father of Abdominal Surgery".
