Trans-Allegheny Asylum in Weston, West Virginia

The Trans-Allegheny Asylum was opened in 1864 and was meant to treat patients deemed “mentally ill.” It had an initial capacity of 250 patients. However, it became home to over 2,400 persons over time. Due to overcrowding, the conditions deteriorated rapidly, and patients were treated inhumanly. As a result, the facility was closed in 1994 and re-opened in 2007. 

It is believed that over 2,000 souls of restless patients and nurses buried in the facility’s cemetery appear at night. Visitors report seeing ghostly figures dressed in white walking along the hallway and hearing inexplicable noises at night. 

Today, the asylum is widely known for guided historical and paranormal tours with a wheel-chair accessible museum, restored rooms, and patient wards. The asylum also has an accessible haunted house that is not for the faint-hearted. 

The Trans-Allegheny Asylum Haunted House brings the story of a demented doctor doing  creepy experiments on his patients and staff to life. You’ll scream with terror as you watch the doctor torture his “patients” before he turns to attack you.

The Dent Schoolhouse, Cincinnati, Ohio

If you take it with a grain of salt, the Dent Schoolhouse in Cincinnati, OH, has a fun, allegedly-authentic storyline.

The scary, wheelchair-accessible attraction used to be an actual learning institution. It was shut down in 1955 after kids had been reported as going missing for over a decade.

A janitor in the public schoolhouse, Charlie, was suspected of foul play after locals discovered human remains in his basement. He reportedly left the town, but there are rumors that he still stalks the site to terrorize anyone foolish enough to visit. This tale is more than a local fable.

Brave visitors have been roaming and exploring the horrors around the rustic red brick building’s halls and the adjacent Queen City Slaughter Yard. You can also be part of this experience on your next trip to Cincinnati… if you dare.
