Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum — Weston, West Virginia

TALA closed in 1994 and was later auctioned off by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources on August 29, 2007. Joe Jordan, an asbestos demolition contractor from Morgantown, WV was the high bidder and paid $1.5 million for the 242,000-square-foot building. Jordan began maintenance projects on the former hospital grounds and in October 2007, a Fall Fest was held at the Weston State Hospital. Guided daytime tours were offered as well as a haunted hospital tour at night.
