In 1823, the first licensed pharmacist in the United States, Louis J. Dufilho Jr. opened an apothecary shop here. This Creole-style town house doubled as his home, and he cultivated herbs needed for medicines in the interior courtyard. Exhibits highlight milestones in pharmacy and medicine. The exhibits include various medical widgets, gizmos and gadgets, some practical and some not.
