There are over 10,000 artifacts including books, pictures and assorted items all which are cataloged and used to create exhibits and displays which are loaned out to hospitals or available to view online via their virtual museum as well.
While the EHMHF focuses on the rich healing arts of Lancaster County, our interest was related to the many herbs that were used for healing in the 18th and 19th Century.
Our tour was enriched by the knowledge of these retired physicians. Dr. Barton Halpern (L) presented an informative presentation on herbs and Dr. Nikitas Zervanos (R) was our escort and host during the tour. Both remained on hand to discuss the collection as did the administrative assistant, Hannah Lerew. It was a very informative stop and a lovely way to round out our 18th Century Immersion Tour.
