Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 7:00pm

The Essex County Overbrook Hospital had been one of the largest facilities in Essex County, New Jersey since 1896. Sitting on what began as a 325-acre plot in what was then Verona Township, Overbrook soon became the largest county-run hospital center in the State of New Jersey.

Author Kevin Kowalick will go over the history of the hospital from its inception in the 1800’s to its downfall in 2018 as portrayed in the book Images of America: Essex County Overbrook Hospital.
