This Terrifying Haunted West Virginia Asylum Was Built On Haunted 666 Acres Of Land

The Worlds Most Haunted Asylum

Weston, West Virginia’s Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is said to be one of the most haunted locations in West Virginia. It’s been featured on paranormal shows like Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters. The massive complex was built in the mid to late 1800s and served as an asylum for people with mental disorders of all kinds. The asylum is the largest hand-cut stone masonry built complex in the United States.

The most terrifying part is that it sits on 666 acres of land. I don’t think it was intentionally planned on being built this way, but it’s still rather creepy. Like most old asylums, things ended up going south with a quickness. The asylum ended up being a dumping ground for poor families. They would send people those they couldn’t take care of or afford to regardless of their mental state.

The Asylum Of Horrors


In those days, locations like this asylum were almost always “self-sufficient” when it came to everything. So the outside world wouldn’t know what was going on behind closed doors. However, stories of mistreatment and terrible conditions started to get out. It was so bad that it was compared to a torture chamber. They were understaffed and the staff they did have weren’t all the best of people. Trans-Allegheny was known for being extremely dangerous. Numerous murders and deaths happened throughout the decades.
