Niagara Apothecary

Potions, lotions, unguents and tinctures galore

In the 1800s, the local pharmacy was a unique destination. There, one could buy anything from barrels of liquor to blood-sucking leeches.

Step into this quaint 1860’s apothecary and examine rows and rows of ingredients and patent medicines used by pharmacists over 100 years ago.

The location is wonderful and very informative. Nice touch on the indigenous medicinal methods - great learning experience.

This is really just one big room but it’s packed with stuff you’d find in a pharmacy in 1812. The docent is very knowledgeable. You can spend anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour in here. It’s on...

This is a fun place to visit for both adults and children. They display old-time apothecary devices and brands of all kinds. We had fun reminiscing about the old drug store products.
