Tour this National Historic Landmark!

Welcome to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum located in Historic Weston, West Virginia. This National Historic Landmark served as a sanctuary for the mentally ill beginning in the mid-1800s. This 160-year-old asylum holds fascinating stories of Civil War raids, a gold robbery, the “curative” effects of architecture, and the efforts of determined individuals to help better the lives of the mentally ill. Tour this nationally recognized historic landmark and see how it left a lasting impression on local and national history.
We offer a variety of historic and paranormal tours during our season.
We will be open Tuesday through Sunday. Our tour season will end in mid-November for historic restoration and general repairs. Ghost hunts of this massive building run year-round.

Open March 30th – November 10th

Historic Tours will leave every hour on the hour. Paranormal Tours leave every 2 hours. The last 45-minute tour leaves at 5:00 p.m. and the 90-minute tour leaves at 4:00 p.m. after we reopen for walk-in tours, on March 30th, 2024.
