For those of you who love architecture you will not be disappointed. This place has some fantastic wood work. I particularly liked the old wooden stairway up to the doctor’s, nurse’s and staff’s living quarters. There are some fantastic features everywhere you look. Especially, if you love antiques and history.


The Allegheny Asylum also has some beautiful archways at the main entrance. This was an area generally occupied by nurses, doctors, staff and visitors to the hospital. Not an area for resident patients.


Creepy Places Access Inside Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

For myself there where some places inside the asylum that were exceptionally creepy places. These were places that I personally found a bit off putting. The kind of places a ghost investigator or medium might enjoy visiting. Myself, I think I would have preferred to just move right along and get past these places quickly.


The morgue and crematorium was one of those very creepy places inside Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum for sure!


Cremation chamber with temperature gauges still in place. Just a little too hot for my comfort even if it is not functioning anymore.



Personally I formed my own opinion about what is scary and what is not scary about the the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum access we received. Now, this is my own opinion only here. Although it is fun to be scared and satisfying curiosity can be a total blast, there are a few things that I found to be worthy of a warning to my readers.

WARNING: Protect Your Lungs! I am a person who is highly susceptible and allergic to MOLD. The back building where the crematorium is located was absolutely covered with a thick layer of active mold. So much so that our feet left prints in the mold. If you are going to access Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum I suggest you bring a breathing mask. They are very inexpensive and will add a layer of protection to your lungs. Since these buildings are very old you may also be protecting yourself from other unseen health issues such as asbestos.


Like most people who tour the Lunatic Asylum in Weston we came dressed like normal tourists. We were asked to sign wavers before we were allowed to enter the Asylum. These wavers release the owners from any liability if anything happens to you during your tour. I have no issues with this at all. I believe the tour was worth every penny and worth me signing a waver. However, you will see in the next images just how moldy sections of the Asylum actually are or were when I was there.


This image above is a prime example of just how deep the active mold is in some areas of the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. BRING A MASK! 


The building in the image above is where I thought the most active mold was growing. If you look at the next image you will quickly notice the layer of mold we walked though growing on the floor. Mold can cause serious health issues. Especially if you have Asthma, immune, cancer or other lung oriented health issues. You can solve this simply by bringing a mask with you in your pocket. They sell them at hardware stores and drug stores. Be safe! Take one with you.


Excellent Access Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Tour

Overall, our tour of the Allegheny Lunatic Asylum was AWESOME! This place is absolutely worth visiting. The tour was fantastic. I must hand it to the tour guides too. They were dressed in period styled clothing. Nurses uniforms, pants with suspenders and other cool clothing choices that really added to the effect of a great tour. The historic value of the tour was astounding. Our tour guide also offered us an incredible amount of historic information about the hospital.


Although some bad things happened at this Asylum, these things happen in any community of people. For the most part this building was built to have a very positive effect on it’s patients and occupants. The architects designed the building so it’s construction and lay out would have the most positive effects on the patients. It was designed so even the wind directions and sunlight could have a healthy effect on the people who stayed here. Very forward thinking in my opinion. Certainly something the architect and builder could truly feel good about and be proud of.


There are some beautifully preserved items and stories in this place. You really should go take a tour!
