MCHS Bus Tour to WV Kirkbride Asylum
Morris County Historical Society has planned a three-day bus trip to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV, April 12-14, site of one of the few remaining intact Kirkbride buildings in America. Like Greystone Park, TALA was constructed and developed following the same philosophy promulgated by Thomas Story Kirkbride (1809-1883), a physician and advocate for the mentally ill. The trip includes round-trip bus transportation from Morristown, two nights’ accommodations at the Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, WV, breakfasts, boxed lunch, and two facility tours. RSVPs MUST be received by March 10.
