Salons at Stowe

January 24, 2024

Join us as we go Into the Vault! In this week’s Salons at Stowe, we will examine a 19th century medicine chest from a Hartford apothecary on Trumbull Street. Who was administering medicines at this time? What were these medicines and how were they supposed to heal someone? How do these medicines reveal understandings of how bodies worked? Would they be safe to use today? (Hint: often not!)
