TAMWORTH, NH, OCTOBER 25, 2018 — Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm in Tamworth has been named a 2018 Family Favorite by ParentingNH Magazine in the category of Kid-Friendly Museum in the Lakes Region. Family Favorites, now in its eight year, is an award program that recognizes family-friendly businesses, services and places from across the Granite State, as chosen by the readers of ParentingNH.
“We are thrilled to be named a Family Favorite by the magazine’s readers, said Dawne Gilpatrick, marketing coordinator at the museum.
Remick Museum & Farm’s exhibits and programs celebrate rural life, with a mission to interpret the historic world of the country doctor as was practiced by Dr. Edwin Remick and his son Dr. Edwin Crafts Remick. The historic Remick homestead on which the museum is situated is a working farm and features many farm animals.
The museum’s buildings and grounds promote exploration, where visitors can experience the four seasons of rural living. Programming is geared toward multigenerational audiences and guided tours, hands-on workshops and special events occur throughout the year.
“We strive to be a relevant, family-friendly destination and to offer value-added programs and events that are affordable, accessible and enjoyable for everyone. This ParentingNH award lets us know families feel we are hitting the mark, which is high praise,” said Ms. Gilpatrick.
“The Family Favorites award program recognizes those places, people and things that make New Hampshire a great place to raise a family,” said Melanie Hitchcock, editor of ParentingNH. “Whether it is at child care center, the library or the playground, parents give each other advice on what and who is the best. The Family Favorites contest gives them the opportunity to share that information with all of our readers.”
The Family Favorite Awards voting took place online from July 1 through Aug. 15, 2018. The results of the reader’s poll will appear in the November 2018 issue of ParentingNH. A complete list of winners will also be posted at www.parentingnh.com.
