Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (formerly Weston State Hospital)


This West Virginia facility served as a sanctuary for the mentally ill in the mid-1800’s. The history of the building holds fascinating stories of Civil War raids, a gold robbery, the "curative" effects of architecture, and the efforts of determined individuals to help better the lives of the mentally ill. We offer daytime historic tours including museum rooms, night time paranormal tours, overnight ghost hunts, photo tours, festivals flashlight tours and a haunted house .
