Tour this National Historic Landmark!

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 will reopen soon and will be open Tuesday through Sunday. Our tour season will end mid November for historic restoration and general repairs. Ghost hunts of this massive building run year round.
