Through the years, The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (formerly the Weston State Hospital) has been a social
and economic contributor to the local community. Continuing in that tradition, currently the front lawn is used
for community youth events and we host other events in various locations of the property.
From Fall Festivals to Mud Bog Races, we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
