Happy Halloween!

In today's fourth installment of Haunted Hospitals, we turn our attention to the Essex County Isolation Hospital in Belleville, New Jersey. Apparently it was a place for tuberculosis patients to be cured. It's a scary-looking place.

It was used as a filming location for "A Beautiful Mind".

Several of the buildings have apparently been demolished. But the main building still remains, and is at least partly used as the "Garden State Cancer Center."


  1. I'll bet that was a beautiful place at one time - the entry is dramatic! I LOVE old abandoned buildings and things like this. I love wandering around and imagining it in its heyday! Off to read Parts 1-3 now!

  2. I worked there back in the early '80's. That was the newest building on the site.I also worked at Overbrook for 6 years.
