Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Weston, West Virginia. Once known as the Weston State Hospital, this asylum was home to thousands of people with mental illness, starting in 1864. It is said that the last 20 years the hospital operated were aggressively violent. Numerous murders between patients occurred, including female employees that were maliciously attacked. Hundreds of people died here before the facility closed in 1994. Spirits are said to haunt the building and grounds today.
This place is haunted and awesome! I live in the county (and only a few miles) from this place. My grandfather and big brother worked for the WV Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. It has been featured on various haunting tv shows; one in which was "Ghost Hunters" full of history & spirits!
