The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum was constructed between 1858 and 1881 in Weston, West Virginia, and is the largest hand-cut stone masonry building in North America. It is a Kirkbride, and housed 250 patients when it initially opened – peaking at 2,400 by the 1950s. The hospital closed in 1994 after suffering for years due to overcrowding and generally deteriorating conditions.


  • But on July 28th, a special Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Tour for Photographers will be held from 8 AM to 12 PM, and from 2 PM to 6 PM. It is an eight hour event to capture both morning and evening light.
  • The price for the event is $190.50 per person. Pre-payment is required.
  • Registration ends on July 24 at 11:30 PM EST. Register early - the event is expected to be sold out quickly.
  • The location of the event is 71 South Asylum Drive, Weston, West Virginia.

NOTICE

Due to a scheduling conflict that just came up, we are only able to do a four hour morning photograph session. This still covers the same area as before, but it will encompass:

Kirkbride
Medical Center
Geriatric building
Exteriors of all buildings
Grounds

The new price is $132.50, which includes tax.
