Things To Know About Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum

Founded in 1792 by young Quaker pharmacist Edward Stabler, the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum was a family business operated until 1933. Its customers included the Washingtons and Robert E. Lee.

The Apothecary closed following the Great Depression but almost immediately, in 1939, it was reopened as a museum and visitors can still view the original ingredients, products, and documents left behind by this 141-year-old family business.

There’s a vast collection of herbal botanicals, a hand-blown glass, medical equipment, as well as a spectacular collection of archival materials such as journals, prescription and formula books, ledgers, orders and invoices.

The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum is located at 105-107 S Fairfax St, in Alexandria. The hours of operation vary depending on the season, closing on Monday and Tuesday during the winter. Guided tours are for 10 people and last 30 minutes.

The museum also runs various community programs including a Girl Scout workshop, various discussions on old medicine, and themed birthday parties.
