More Information

Visit the Botetourt County Historical Museum to view our new exhibit on changing trends in health care. Discover some of the people that have contributed to our community in the past. Botetourt’s earliest known surgical instrument is on display, and vintage medicine bottles represent pharmaceutical treatments (not all of which were good for you!) Pandemics are part of our history; from yellow fever and smallpox in the days of Washington, Wytheville’s polio outbreak in 1950, and the arrival of COVID-19 in 2020. Health careers continue to respond to the challenge.
