May 7 (Wed) 6:30pm "Dr. James Still — Herb Doctor of the Pines" presented by Dr. Still’s great, great nephew, William H. Still, at the Franklinville Community Center, located within the Franklin Township Public Library, 1584 Coles Mill Rd., Franklinville NJ.
Come out and join the members of the South Jersey Unit of the Herb Society of America for this informative lecture.
Dr. James Still (1812-1882) was not a trained or licensed physician. At a time when most doctors relied on unproven medications, James Still was a distinguished herbalist–a seller of botanical remedies of his own devising, the superiority of which gained him a large clientele. Known as the "black doctor" of the pinelands, early New Jersey settlers came from miles around to be treated by Dr. Still.
