Mountains, ocean waves, nebulas & MUSIC. Here you will find the most eclectic and sometimes random collection of posts. But it's all relative, of course. - Sharon

Pictures taken at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. Formerly known as the Weston State Hospital (built in the mid 1800’s). I took these photos on a trip to West Virginia in the summer of 2011. The 4th and 5th pictures in the series are of a small storage unit used to temporarily hold the bodies of patients who passed away at the hospital.

Apparently at its height the hospital was a big source of revenue for the town. Since its closure a couple decades ago, the town has fallen into a horrible state of disrepair and driving through Weston to get to the hospital left us feeling a tad unsettled. An amazing building to visit and tour through, however.

All photos were taken and belong to Sharon Porter. Please do not steal or use anywhere else without permission.

    Weston is my hometown and I really have no idea why people always think it’s scary.
