Brown House Chiropractic Museum
The Brown House Chiropractic Museum exists for the purpose of storing and exhibiting chiropractic history items. The focus of the museum is on items that pertain to:
a) Traditional, subluxation-centered chiropractic (magazine articles and equipment)
b) Dr. Lyle Sherman, namesake of the College
c) Dr. Thom Gelardi, founder of the College
d) D.D., B.J., and Mabel Palmer, including items from the B.J. Palmer winter home museum in Sarasota, Florida, recently donated by the Sid Williams family.
Hours for the museum vary from quarter-to-quarter. The (non-therapeutic) curator of the museum is Dr. John Hart who can be reached by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer Quarter July 14 –September 9: Tuesdays: 10:00 AM – Noon
From the student parking lot, go across the bridge and walk up the sidewalk through the woods. The entrance to the chiropractic museum is located near the end of the sidewalk on the side of the Brown house.

Picture of B.J. Palmer
One of our work study students in the museum, Courtney Geer, discovered an original photo of Dr. B.J. Palmer, dated May of 1961 while discharging her duties as a museum cataloguer. Dr. Palmer passed away May 27, 1961, so Dr. Hart considers this to be one of the last, if not the last photo of Dr. Palmer prior to his passing.
