Description

Heal your ailments during “Dr. Dumas: Traveling Medicine Show” at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 15. From the mid 1800’s to the 1940’s, one of the first forms of medicine to reach frontier America was the traveling Medicine Show. Part entertainment, part scam and quackery, these “shows” traveled the west with their miracle cures. Historian and NHTIC volunteer Bruce Berst will give an example of what these shows entailed, followed by a question and answer period.

The NHTIC proudly presents a summer of afternoon programs on pioneer and Wyoming history. These short interpretive programs, ranging from 20 to 45 minutes, are free and open to the public.

For more information, please contact the NHTIC by calling (307) 261-7780.
