In Lewis County, the season opening for the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum was held on Saturday. That means tours will now be held six days a week.
If you love to be scared, taking a tour of the historic building will surely do it for you. But you can also learn a lot from them. Tours are held to explain about the architecture, the history of mental illness, and the cemetery and farms.
To kick off the start of the season, they had vendors, tours, and a renaissance re-enactment.
Since the asylum re-opened in 2008, over 150,000 guests have toured the spooky halls, bringing a lot of business to the town of Weston.
