Thanks to having a mouthful of a name, it?s easy to get its actual name right. Some call it the Trans Allegheny Insane Asylum. Others just call it the Trans Lunatic Asylum. In the end, it doesn?t matter. There?s only one Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum that?s 150 years old and now recognized as a National Historic Landmark.

In the mid 19th century, the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum gave medical care to the mentally ill. Afterwards, however, it had been featured in Civil War raids and even a gold robbery.

There are two kinds of tours you can take ? ghost tours or heritage tours. If you?re feeling adventurous, there?s also overnight ghost hunts which are offered all year long.
