LANDING AFTER HOURS: GRANNY WOMEN, YARB DOCTORS & OTHER MISSOURI FOLK HEALERS

December 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Have you ever met a Missourian who claimed to “buy” people’s warts? What about carrying a buckeye in your pocket for luck, or using an herb poultice on a cut? As the people of the Appalachian Mountains traveled west, many settled in Missouri. With them, they brought a wealth of knowledge in practices of medicine and protection from a time when the nearest doctor could be more than a day’s travel away. Join Chief Museum Interpreter Carrie Hammond as she explores the types of Missouri folk healers, how they originated, and what we can learn from them today.
