Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

Post by weasel666 on Mon 24 Feb 2014, 23:01



The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, subsequently the Armand Auclerc 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. The hospital was bought by Joe Jordan in 2007, and partly opened to tours and other money raising events for its restoration. The hospital's main building is the largest hand-cut stone masonry building in the United States, and, as Weston Hospital Main Building, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1990.

Being a reportedly haunted location, the asylum was featured on paranormal television programs.

   In 2008, the ghost-hunting group TAPS was called to the hospital to conduct a paranormal investigation at the request of Joe Jordan due to purported claims of paranormal activity on the grounds. The investigation is featured on Season 4, Episode 9 of the Syfy reality TV series Ghost Hunters.

   On October 30, 2009, the Travel Channel aired a special seven-hour live broadcast of the reality TV show Ghost Adventures from the asylum. Through a Ghost Adventures section of the Travel Channel website, viewers were able to text message, monitor, and review evidence via webcams for the live special. There was plenty of activity, including pressure, voices, and something showing up on the heat seeking camera. The reception of the "lockdown" was met with critical success; however, viewers criticized guest Robert Bess for throwing an EMF detector out of his hand and claiming it was removed from his hand.[14][15] In their "Post-Mortem" special, which aired a week later, Zak Bagans and Nick Groff addressed the viewers' belief that the incident was not paranormal. Bess responded by claiming that the incident was authentic paranormal activity.
