APRIL TOPIC: HAUNTED ASYLUMS

Check out Buzz Killers every Sunday for new episodes! A proud podcast of the Podmoth Media Network. 

 

In episode sixty seven we discuss the haunting of Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.

In October of 1864 the Trans-Allegehney Lunatic Asylum accepted patients for the first time, the civil war had delayed instruction and the building was often used as Camp Tyler. The facility quickly developed a gruesome history of inhumane medical practices that were once considered "state of the art" and it is not hard to believe that claims of paranormal activity has been made at Trans-Allegehney since its inception.
