Healing in the Adirondacks : Medicine and Medical Practice

The Adirondack Mountains have long been thought to have healing properties. The clear, balsam-scented air; bracing winters; and outdoor sports and recreation brought health-seeking visitors as early as the first half of the 19th century. The Adirondack Experience collection reflects the history of medical care in the region, from tuberculosis sanitariums to village family doctors.
