Restoring T.A.L.A.

Despite being designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1990, the hospital has deteriorated to the point where its very survival is threatened. The entire facility and 300 acres were privately purchased in August of 2007 and renamed Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (TALA) from The Weston State Hospital. We are committed to restoring TALA to its former grandeur, thus reviving the local economy and preserving an important piece of American history. To help, sign up to be a volunteer or make a donation.

Come help us preserve our area’s greatest treasure.
