Caring for a sick family member was a common part of life in the Victorian period. Any bedroom could become the “sick room” where a convalescing patient could rest undisturbed from the difficulties of life. This exhibit features a variety of both beautiful and useful items that helped ease the invalid back to health.
The Sick Room is on loan from the Country Doctor Museum and will be on display from January through May 2017 in the Langford North Carolina Collection on the 3rd floor of J.Y. Joyner Library.
Many of the beautiful objects on display are on loan from the private collection of Brenda Rewalt. For additional information, please contact The Country Doctor Museum at 252-235-4165 or email Anne Anderson.
