Dr. Christopher S. Best House and Office

Dr. Christopher S. Best House and Office is a historic home located at Middleburgh in Schoharie County, New York. It is a two story, flat roofed, frame Italianate dwelling built in 1884. It was enlarged and modified with a series of renovations between 1890 and 1912. It now houses a medical history museum. Also on the property are a frame carriage barn and garage.As if awaiting the return of Dr. Best from a house call on his horse-drawn carriage, this Victorian home and medical office captures the elegance of the 1920s. Serving a small-town American community from 1884 to 1991, the Dr. Best collection echoes reminders of a quickly changing era. Civil War, railroad and telephone artifacts all reflect the character of this family of pioneers and visionaries. The expansive and unique collection includes thousands of bottles, automotive memorabilia, clothing and quilts, to name a few as well as the fully stocked kitchen and state-of-the-art medical equipment. The house is open for tours Memorial Day through Labor Day on Saturdays and Sundays, 12-4pm.It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
