McKinnon-Riggs Doctor's Office





































The McKinnon-Riggs Doctor's Office is another of the 1800's buildings at Heritage Village. A museum in miniature, it features medical equipment and furniture from the days when it served Dr. Kenneth McKinnon (1852-1871), Dr. S.W. Riggs (1905-1945) and Dr. William Staggers, 1950s. The Greek Revival structure with Doric columns was moved here from Pleasant Hill in 1981. The building will be on tour next weekend during the Historic Selma Pilgrimage.

I like taking tours of historic towns. I hope you'll be there enjoying the day along with all the others.

It looks very nice.

I shudder to think what kind of "medical instruments" from that era are on display...
The building is precious!

I remember when they moved that building to town. The children from Byrd School were winding the may-pole in the little lot that was next to it during the pilgrimage.

I really have to get over to Selma one of these days. You have so much interesting historic sites to offer.

Tonewah, you must have been a very young child back in '81. I was covering Pilgrimage for the newspaper and remember taking pictures of the Maypole dancers. Were you one of them? Funny, I don't remember dancer named Tonewah!
