Located above a still-working drugstore, the Holmes Medical Museum housed Foley’s first hospital from 1936 to 1958. When the hospital closed, the rooms were preserved just as they looked.
Visitors can stroll through the operating room and patient rooms of the four-bed hospital. Steel tools used to pinch, poke, and prod are laid out in cases and and on stark metal trays.
The musuem is open Monday though Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is located at 111 W Laurel Ave, (Hwy. 59) in Foley.
