Dr. James Still

Dr. James Still, Pine Barrens Doctor and Herbalist

Due to the switch back to virtual classes, this class about Dr. Still will be rescheduled for springtime.

Enjoy tea and teacakes with Jeannie Francis, a local herbalist, and learn about local herbalism and local hero Dr. James Still, The Black Doctor of the Pines.

James Still was a hardworking young man with a passion for medicine and helping his fellow man. He studied and began creating herbal distillations and remedies that made him well known and wealthy. He stayed true to his dream through extreme poverty, heartache and racism to become a much loved figure in Burlington County History.

We will learn about Dr. James Still as a way of understanding the history of herbal medicine with one of our own local herbalists, while sharing locally made herbal teas, homemade cookies and tea sandwiches.
