Our virtual tour of Colonial Medicine
Local Hero D.W. Roberts - St. Augustine's Spanish Flu hero!
Lessons of history teach us about our future!
Sometimes the Disease wasn't as bad as the Cure!
Join us as we build a museum; to learn from, to share with others and which will create a testament to the nation's oldest city.
Our museum has grown from humble beginnings as a colonial medicine program for elementary-aged children visiting St. Augustine on field trips.
We have grown into a public offering, a fully-guided experience into the world of colonial medicine inside the museum itself.
But we are just getting started. We now begin the next phase...expanding the museum to cover not only colonial history but the history of modern medicine.
We aim to inform the public of the heroes of our past, local and otherwise who have contributed to the healthcare of the public through deeds and innovations.
This is our next chapter
