No Harm Intended


The Lane County Historical Museum is proud to present No Harm Intended: Medical History in Lane County. This exhibit uses over two hundred historic artifacts and photographs to tell the personal stories of some of the individuals tasked with helping Lane County residents stay well between 1840 and 1940. The topics covered include pioneer home remedies, early lab technology, patent medicines and medical tools. No Harm Intended will also explore some of the major advances in medicine during that period and how America’s conceptualization of health changed in just one hundred years.

There will be a free public reception held on November 13, 2015 from 6 – 8 pm with a curator’s talk at 7 pm. The exhibit will run through March 2016.



Clink! A History of Winemaking in Oregon

MAR 28 – NOV 2015

This exhibit plays to one of the Museum’s many strengths—its vast historic photographic collection. The exhibition focuses on several of Lane County’s most prolific photographers, beginning with the early part of the 20th Century: J. Merle Nighswander , Smith Mountjoy Chester Stevenson, Sr.; Elizabeth Romane, and the Kennell –Ellis Studios constitute the black and white contributions. Don Hunter represents the color era (he began taking photographs in 1938). The many examples of each photographer’s work are supplemented by early cameras on display from the Schuelke Collection, as well as equipment on loan from Don Hunter. If photographs are your special interest, please visit the museum’s extensive online photo catalog.
