The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum represents one of Alexandria's oldest continuously run businesses. The museum holds a remarkable collection of herbal botanicals, handblown glass, and medical equipment, much still in its original location. 

 

Operating from 1796 until 1933, the Apothecary continues to evolve as new research uncovers and expands understanding and interpretation of this historical site. 

 

On-going collaboration with the Apothecary Museum includes devising and mounting artifacts, creating and producing interpretive graphics and labels for artifacts using eco-responsible materials.
