  • Dr. Samuel Gilbert lived in Farmers Branch for nearly 30 years, and served as the primary doctor for this area.  But what kind of medicine did he practice?  Come to the Historical Park’s Gilbert House to explore his tools and tricks.  Everything from leeches and bloodletting, to amputations and home-made medicines.  The Doctor’s wife, Julia Gilbert, will be on hand to show visitors what life was like in the 1800s and how her husband treated some of the most gruesome diseases and injuries of the day!
