Prepare to get the heebie-jeebies! The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, located in Weston, West Virginia, opened in 1864 to house the mentally ill and was forced to close down in 1994. Some of the reasons that people would be admitted to the Weston Asylum: the dreaded “female disease”, laziness, birth control, and religious enthusiasm. This abandoned asylum is now supposedly haunted with the souls of the insane.
