The Worlds Most Haunted Asylum
Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is located in Weston West Virginia and has a very interesting history behind it. The asylum has been featured on paranormal shows such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. It’s been called one of the most haunted places in the world. The massive location was built in the mid to late 1800s and served as an asylum for those with mental disorders. It’s actually the largest hand-cut stone masonry built complex in the USA.
The creepiest part of this place is that it sits on 666 ACRES OF LAND!
Trans-Allegheny was the kind of place where people with mental disorders would get or seek treatment. However, some were there by their families because they were ashamed of them. Some families would send their family, or those they were in the care of just so they wouldn’t have to take care of them.
The Haunted Asylum
Stories of mistreatment eventually started creeping out. It was all in the name of “treatment”, but the inhuman tactics were far from anything “cure” related. People were kept in dark basements for long periods of time. They would be kept under inhuman conditions and treated like they didn’t matter.
The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Haunted Asylum was notoriously known for being a real DANGEROUS place. Patients would kill staff and even each other in fits of rage, and some of the staff treated the patients very poorly.
