The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, subsequently the Weston State Hospital, was a Kirkbride psychiatric hospital that operated from 1864 until 1994 by the government of the U.S. state of West Virginia, in the city of Weston. Built by architect Richard Andrews, it was constructed from 1858- 1881. Originally designed to hold 250 people, it became overcrowded in the 1950s with 2,400 patients. It was forcibly closed in 1994 due to changes in treatments of patients  


Reportedly one of the most haunted sites in America, claims here run from unexplained sounds to voices and screams to full figured apparitions.


 Synopsis or Personal experiences:

    09:10 - Mike and Heather in kitchen, ovilus say metal, we hear metal banging, then the mel meter spikes (see audio below)

    11:05 - Lois gets ill in a 4th floor room and has to leave.

    11:45 - Mike and Marc return to the 4th floor room and Mike's head gets touched right after we get 2 interesting words from the Ovilus (audio).

    11:55 - Heather and Missy in 4th floor hall hear banging noises and a disembodied voice.  (audio)

    12:50 - While investigating the children's ward, we caught 2 separate instances of a child crying.  (audio)
