The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum took 23 years to be built and is the largest stone-cut structure in North America and comes second to the Kremlin. It became a functional psychiatric hospital from 1864 and was closed in 1994 after 130 years of being an asylum for the mentally unstable. Now it is a popular tourist spot offering heritage (historic) and paranormal tours. There are various tour packages available which will give a glimpse of this historical place and into its spooky stories. If you are a history lover or a supernatural enthusiast, a tour to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum should be in your itinerary.
