Mission of the Apothecary Museum

In keeping with standard museum practices, each Historic Alexandria property has a Mission Statement. The following describes the mission of the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum.

The Mission of the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum

The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum, one of the oldest pharmacies in the nation, exists today to promote a greater understanding of historic public health issues, inspire people with the values of Quaker founder, Edward Stabler, and engage the visitor in an appreciation of our local and national history by sharing the story of this business and family’s profound effect on the community in such diverse areas as education and the abolition of slavery.
