Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm
58 Cleveland Hill Road, Tamworth, NH 03886 - United States
Founded in 1996 and open year round, Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm is located in the Village of Tamworth, NH, where we celebrate 200+ years of agricultural tradition and interpret the world of the country doctor through the lives of Dr. Edwin “Doc” Crafts Remick (1903-1993) and his father, Dr. Edwin Remick (1866-1935).
In addition to the Museum Center and historic Captain Enoch Remick House (c. 1808), the museum features walking trails, vegetable and herb gardens, grazing pastures, agricultural outbuildings, a maple sugar house and more. Workshops, classes, history-based and farm-to-table events occur in all seasons.
Remick is a Yankee Magazine “Best of New England 2018” recipient and was named a “2018 Family Favorite” by the readers of ParentingNH Magazine.
Remick is a member of ALHFAM (The Association for Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums), as well as part of the New Hampshire Heritage Museum Trail.
Early April is a transitional time at the museum as winter turns into spring. As such you will see new life on the farm with baby animals gracing our pastures and barns.
Inside the Main Museum building take time to explore Dr. Edwin C. Remick's mid-century apartment where he and his wife Marion lived throughout most of the 20th-century. Also in the Main Building is our newest changing exhibit: "Where Home Meets Harvest: New England Kitchen Gardens, 1790–1945." Visitors can delve deep into the history of kitchen gardens via our display of artifacts, archival materials, and photos exploring topics such as native vs introduced crops, food preservation and preparation, early 20th-century school gardens, and more.
Weather conditions permitting, various outbuildings and barns, as well as our walking trails, will be available for self-guided exploration.
