New in the collection: Country Doctor Museum tag

Front license plate reading "Bailey, Home of the Country Doctor Museum."Bailey, a town of 500-plus in Nash County, has been the museum’s home since its founding in 1967 by Josephine E. Newell, seventh in a line of country doctors. In 2003, however, local volunteers turned over stewardship to the Medical Foundation of East Carolina University.

Mecklenburg County has its own – much smaller — Mint Hill Country Doctor’s Museum.
