Wicked Apothecary!
Monday, Nov. 1, 7pm
 Join us for an evening of diabolical concoctions with the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum. Some of these mixtures and compounds may be familiar from murder-mysteries, while others may surprise you. Learn about historical poisons in their collection during this Zoom presentation, which includes a virtual tour of the historic apothecary, and a deeper dive into collection items connected to plant-based medicines and poisons.
  The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum in Alexandria, Virginia is noted for its outstanding collection of medicinal herbs, shop furnishings, and apothecary bottles and equipment. Most of its collection is original to the 141-year-old family business, reflecting how medicine, the business, and Alexandria changed through the centuries.
