Tours of this National Historic Landmark resume March 30th

March 30th,2019 – November 17th 2019


Welcome to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (AKA the Weston State Hospital) located in Historic Weston, West Virginia. This National Historic Landmark served as a sanctuary for the mentally ill beginning in the mid-1800's. This 160 year old asylum 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 historic landmark and see how it left a lasting impression on local and national history.

We offer a variety of historic and paranormal tours during our season. We open at the end of March and will close in November for restoration and general repairs. Ghost hunts of this massive building run year round.


Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Note: Please dress appropriately for the current
weather conditions. It is hot in the summer and
cold in the winter inside the building.
