Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm, Tamworth

July 12

On Thursday July 12th, we will visit the Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm in Tamworth NH. Medicine and farming share the spotlight  at this 18th-century family farm, home to two generations of Remick doctors. The role the country doctor played in the community blends with an emphasis on how he grew vegetables and kept livestock just as his neighbors did. Father and son doctors, both Edwin Remick, (though the son was Edwin Crafts Remick), saw to this farming community for a total of 99 years between them. For most of that time, the Remicks were  the only physicians in Tamworth, seeing patients from this remarkably pretty homestead until the death of “Younger Remick” in 1993. This museum was voted as the Editors Choice for 2018 in New England Today Travel.

After touring the museum, we will have lunch at Hobb’s Tavern. According to their website they are, “An idyllic countryside tavern and brew house offering warmth, history, classic comfort food, and handcrafted beer at the foot of the New Hampshire White Mountains.

Cost for the trip is $15, which includes museum entrance and bus fare and is due when you sign up (minimum of 6 participants necessary to make trip). Pick up at Rush Square at 8:15 AM and Henniker Community Parking lot at 8:20 AM.

If you would like to sign up, you can stop by White Birch and see Marie or Beth Ann.
