Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm: History in the Making

Situated on the picturesque grounds of a historic 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 all generations can learn from these histories.

Interactive learning opportunities are offered as much as possible, each of which allows for an enriched experience. For those who wish to deepen their understanding of historical practices and traditions, throughout the year we offer season-based workshops, classes, activities, hearthside dinners, and “old-time” events—see this month’s calendar. During the summer season, we offer a Summertime Daily Activities schedule, Monday through Saturday.

A treasured destination of locals and visitors alike, your visit to Remick will leave you with a delightful sense of having stepped back in time. The museum and farm is open year round and is tucked into quaint Tamworth Village and nestled between the Lakes and White Mountain Regions of New Hampshire—conveniently located just off the beaten paths of Routes 16 & 25. We look forward to welcoming you!

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To educate a broad and diverse public to the values and significance of the medical practice and agricultural way of life of the country doctor, and to preserve and protect the Remick property and collections for the benefit of the public.”
