Tour this National Historic Landmark

Welcome to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (AKA the Weston State Hospital) located in Weston, West Virginia. This West Virginia facility served as a sanctuary for the mentally ill beginning in the mid-1800's. This 160 year old building holds fascinating stories of Civil War raids, a gold robbery, the "curative" effects of architecture, and the efforts of determined individuals to help better the lives of the mentally ill. Tour this nationally recognized landmark and see how it left a lasting impression on local and national history.
