There will be a brief business session at 7:00 pm, followed by the program & refreshments. Free and open to the public. Bring a friend.
We’re pleased to welcome noted researcher and reenactor Bob Young for an exploration of the role, training, and tools of the trade of an 18th century apothecary in America. He will discuss with us theories of disease causation at the time, along with many of the remedies the colonists used, from common and not-so-common herbs to elixirs, leeches, and surgical procedures. This is sure to be an entertaining—and in some regards—shudder-provoking evening.
But even if you aren’t a member, our monthly history-themed programs are free and the public is warmly invited. The business session starts at 7:00. If you want to skip it and come just for the program, arrive about 7:30.
The Canterbury Historical Society’s regular monthly meetings are normally on the second Friday evening of the month unless otherwise noted. We do not meet in July and August, when we take a summer break, however, we often hold special events in the summer.
