Click below to watch the Ghost Adventures episode that aired LIVE from the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum on October 30, 2009. It was the first location that Zak Bagans and crew investigated as they broadcasted LIVE for the TV Show!
"The Asylum has had apparition sightings, unexplainable voices and sounds, and other paranormal activity reported in the past by guests, staff, SyFy's Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters Academy and the Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures"
~ TALA Official Website
"Tour guides and visitors
have reported being tapped
on the shoulder by an
unseen force, hearing
the sound of invisible
gurneys rolling down
the hallway and a male
voice whispering sinister
warnings in their ear."

Join your hosts Stephanie Lechniak, Founder/Owner of
Haunted Hamilton and Psychic Medium HH Mum Cathy as we hop aboard a luxury-chartered bus and travel to one of the MOST HAUNTED lunatic asylums in North America!
The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, constructed between 1858 and 1881, is the largest hand-cut stone masonry building in North America, and is purportedly the second largest in the world, next to the Kremlin.
The original hospital, designed to house 250 souls, was open to patients in 1864, during the American Civil War, and reached its peak in the 1950's with 2,400 patients in overcrowded and generally poor conditions. The medically untrained neurologist, Dr. Walter Freeman haphazardly performed ice-pick lobotomies and used electro-shock therapy with the idea that it would cure some of the patient's mental ailments.
The amount of deaths that took place within the walls of the lunatic asylum were documented well into the thousands. Many of the dead are buried in cemeteries located near the hospital. This could very well be why the facility was named one of the most haunted places in the United States!
EXPERIENCE THE HAUNTINGS!
People who come to the now abandoned facility find themselves greeted by a white haze, or mist, that floats about in random corners. Many have had the feeling of being watched, but one security guard experienced much more. He felt this near the kitchen. Then from the raised hallway he saw the grayish figure of a woman staring out one of the kitchen windows.
Staff who work at the building today have heard noises from empty corridors, including the sounds of rolling gurney’s and screaming from the old shock rooms. A male spirit dressed like a doctor has been seen roaming the hallways, and many spirits dressed like patients are seen all over the facility.
The violent history of this place came to an end in the last 20 years leading up to its closure. During this time many bodies were found around the Asylum, victims of murder as patients were known to kill each other.

A stop at the famous Evans City Cemetery
used in the opening of
George A. Romero's
1968 Cult classic "Night of the Living Dead"
"Thousands have been
committed to the asylum
over the years, and hundreds
unfortunately died here.
Decide for yourself if
they’re still occupying
the historic wards and
~ TALA Official Website
"As recently as 1987,
2 patients tried to kill
another patient by hanging
him from a pipe in seclusion
room. When that didn't
work they proceeded to
take him down and finished
him off by crushing his skull
under the leg of a bedpost.
One of the same patients
involved in the "bedpost"
murder snuck out of his
room during a shift change
one night and beat another
patient to death in the hallway."
