Homewood Museum hosts a Victorian medical show on Sunday, July 6 at 1:30 p.m. This stone house was built for Dr. Solomon Jones, the only doctor between Cornwall and Kingston in 1799. Retired nurse, Nancy MacLeod, will give a fun and educational presentation on different Victorian medical procedures and the audience will have a chance to look at Victorian medical equipment up close.

This summer, the museum has several fascinating new exhibits, including one showcasing clothing worn by the Jones family. It features early 19th century breeches, a corset and bustle, a ladies two-piece outfit and delicate dancing slippers.
