Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. One of the scariest haunted hospitals. The hospital is the second largest hand cut stone building in the United States. The hospital was built to hold 250 mentally ill patients. In 1950 the patients numbered 2400. Many were tormented, tortured and believed to be murdered there. Charles Manson once was a resident there. The asylum closed in 1994.

Maybe I will go to this one (Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston, West Virginia) to console myself. I could even spend the night! Oh, yeah.
