Wellness center opens in historic Overbrook home

OVERBROOK – A home built in 1875 by one of Overbrook’s founders has now become a center of wellness for the town.

The Fairchild Wellness Center, named after J.B Fairchild, co-founder of Overbrook, will celebrate its grand opening with an open house 1-4 p.m. Sunday, March 30.

The center’s founder, Cheryl Miller, is an exercise physiologist, wellness strategist and life coach. She is the former director of an award-winning wellness program for 80,000 employees, dependents and retirees, and has an M.S. in exercise physiology and community health.

Miller moved to Overbrook in 2013 and purchased the oldest home in town. The newly renovated portion of this historic home, which is situated on the old Santa Fe Trail, has been converted into the wellness center located at 401 Oak St.

Miller is inviting everyone in Overbrook and surrounding communities to the open house. Refreshments will be served.

Also in celebration of the grand opening, the center is offering a week of free classes March 31 to April 4. Free classes will include gentle yoga for all ages and seated classes to improve balance, strength, and flexibility. A free presentation on healthy aging at any age will be presented Monday, March 31, at 10 a.m. and again at 7 p.m.  Everyone is encouraged to bring family, friends and neighbors.
