Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm: History in the Making
With so much to explore, rediscover and learn, Remick is an enriching destination for all generations!
Situated on the picturesque grounds of a 200+-year-old homestead and farm—still a working farm today, Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm is the only country doctor museum in New England and one of only three in the United States. Your visit will provide a glimpse into the important contributions once made by country doctors, as well as New Hampshire’s agricultural and rural past, and highlight ways you can learn from these histories.
Interactive, hands-on and tasting learning opportunitties are offered as much as possible, each of which allows for an enriched experience. For those who wish to deepen their understanding of historic practices and traditions, throughout the year we offer season-based workshops, classes, activities, lectures, hearthside dinners, and "old-time" seasonal and signature events for all generations. During the summer season we offer a Daily Activities & Tours schedule, Monday through Saturday.
A treasured destination of locals and visitors alike, your visit to the farmstead and the surrounding village will leave you with a delightful sense of stepping back in time. Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm is nestled between the Lakes and White Mountain Regions of New Hampshire and conveniently located just off the beaten paths of Routes 16 & 25. We look forward to welcoming you to Remick!
