Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm

Feel as though you’ve stepped back in time as we blend the past with the present to share the rich history of two country doctors and their village homestead.

Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm is located in charming Tamworth Village, conveniently nestled between the White Mountains and the Lakes Region and readily accessible from Routes 16 and 25.

The only country doctor museum in New England—one of only three in the United States—Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm provides year-round opportunities for you to engage with rural New England history.

  • The museum is a tribute to two country doctors—Dr. Edwin Remick and his son, Dr. Edwin "Doc" Crafts Remick—who served the medical needs of the Tamworth area for a combined 99 years.

  • Your visit offers a historical look at the importance of the country doctor and interactive experiences of the agricultural way of life in New Hampshire from that time to today.
  • A historic and continuously working farm, Remick is the site of the first milk pasteurization facility north of Rochester, NH (Hillsdale Farm).

Whether through activities, toursworkshops, herbal programs, farm-to-table mealseducational programming or seasonal events, each visit provides engaging experiences for all generations to learn from and enjoy.
