MUSIC, the universe, photography, hockey, a good joke, and all things strange. 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.
