An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure: A Medical History of Onslow County

Coming soon! In January the museum will open its newest exhibit in the changing gallery, which will explore the medical history of Onslow County.

From early physicians and midwives to the development of the health department and the first hospital this exhibit will tell the story of how health care in the county has changed and grown over the last three centuries. Including artifacts such as an 1890s handmade wheel chair, a 1930s dentist chair, and a handmade children's crutch, this exhibit will bring some of the museum's most interesting collections into the gallery.
