Dr. Best House & Medical Museum


As if awaiting the return of Dr. Best from a house call on his horse-drawn carriage, this Italianate Victorian style home and medical office captures the elegance of the turn of the century.

Serving a small-town American community from 1884 to 1991, the Dr. Best collection echoes reminders of a quickly changing era. Civil War, railroad and telephone artifacts all reflect the character of this family of pioneers and visionaries. The expansive and unique collection includes thousands of bottles, automotive memorabilia, clothing and quilts, to name a few as well as the fully stocked period kitchen and state-of-the-art medical equipment.

Dr. Best House & Medical Museum is also famous for paranormal activities and is part of the New York State Haunted History Trail.

Motorcoach-friendly, offering guided tours year-round. Small group meeting or event space is available. Limited handicap access.
