The Niagara Apothecary is located in the heart of Niagara on the Lake, in the same building its occupied for nearly a century and a half. The apothecary went through 6 owners/pharmacists during its existence which spanned from 1818/1820 to 1964, when it closed due to the ill-health of its last owner. In 1869 the apothecary opened its doors in its present location on Queen Street. It is the only remaining original building of that time left in town.
The building was painstakingly restored by the Ontario Heritage Foundation and turned into a museum in 1971. If you ever find yourself in Niagara on the Lake take a step back in time and visit this gem.
