Greystone’s Legacy: Connections to Other Kirkbrides

March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$7 – $12.

The evolution of the Preserve Greystone movement and its impact on preserving Kirkbride buildings nationwide will be the focus of a talk by authors Rusty Tagliareni and Christina Mathews at Acorn Hall on Sunday, March 11, 2 p.m. The program is sponsored by Morris County Historical Society (MCHS). During this multimedia presentation, the best-selling authors of the award-winning Images of America book Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital will focus on the history of our nation’s Kirkbride asylums and the many connections between Greystone and Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (TALA) in WV. A MCHS trip to TALA, which is open to the public, is set for April 12-14. The program also will include a vignette screening and book signing.
