The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia is said to be the most haunted location in the United States. Shut down in 1994 it is said that "ice pick lobotomies" took place here. A doctor would insert an ice pick into a human brain and with a few sweeping motions render the patient a vegetable. Screams can be heard inside the Asylum as well as sounds of gurneys being pushed down the halls.
