Historical Society unveils Norwich Pharmacal exhibit

NORWICH – Approximately 100 local residents, historians, city officials and former employees of the Norwich Pharmacal Company, Norwich Eaton Pharmaceuticals and Proctor & Gamble were on hand last night for an official ribbon cutting ceremony opening the new Norwich Pharmacal exhibit at the Chenango County Historical Society Museum.



The former Pharmacal Museum, located in the Eaton Center up until three months ago, was originally created by Proctor & Gamble, who acquired Norwich Eaton Pharmaceuticals, formerly known as Norwich Pharmacal, in 1982. Following its departure from the center in 1995, much of the pharmaceutical memorabilia was presented to the county’s museum at 45 Rexford St. in Norwich.

The new exhibit features a number of informational wall hangings, historic artwork, advertising pieces and a digital slide show, according to Historical Society and Museum Director Alan Estus, who said the importance of featuring this company and its importance to the community could not be underestimated.
