Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm - Tamworth, New Hampshire

The Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm
showcases the agricultural way of life in New Hampshire, from 1790 to the present. Visit their working farm with sheep, goats, cows, steers, oxen, chickens, and turkey and in spring and summer, lambs and pigs. Walk into the 1830's garden and view the historic crops and vegetables. Take a leisurely 6/10 mile hike on the Binsack Trail, a low impact experience offering spectacular views of Remick Farm, Mount Chocorua, and the Ossipee Mountain Range.

Remick Farm has a cattle barn, milk house, maple sugar house, stable, and a historic English Barn. Many of these buildings are open in spring, summer, and during special events. Take a tour of these facilities with a Remick Museum Tour Guide, who provides you with exclusive access and information on historic farm tools and equipment.

The Captain Enoch Remick House contains the antique furnishings of the country doctors, which include an antique toy collection and 19th century murals attributed to the American painter, John Avery. The original medical office and medicine room, used by both doctors, are preserved on the first floor.
