A Trip Through This Haunted Asylum In West Virginia Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum has an incredible history. When it opened in 1864 the asylum was a step in the right direction in a time when mentally ill people were often jailed, abused, or accused of witchcraft, but it was far from perfect. Today you can tour the facilities to find out more about everyday life for the patients. In September and October, you can also investigate rumors of the asylum being haunted.

The address for the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is 71 Asylum Drive, Weston, WV 26452.
