Event Details

Bottles, handwritten prescription forms, and books are just a few of the items in the ACHS collections which tell interesting stories of medical history. Dr. Flora Aldrich, one of the early female doctors in the area, wrote several books of medical advice. Local clinics provided medical care in the years before Anoka County had a large hospital. People took interesting medications in the past as well – would you take pills that had arsenic in them? Learn about these things and more in this fun program! Presented by the Anoka County Historical Society.  This program is made possible by the Minnesota Art and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Event Type(s): Legacy Amendment, Genealogy/History
