Main Stariwell - Weston, WV Lunatic Asylum

This is the main stairwell of the West Virginia Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. The wood is mahogany and from the mid 1800.  The banister is still very solid.

Palatial accommodations at Weston State Mental Hospital

5-Star hotels have marble showers - what's to complain about?

The windows have safety features so they do not accidently open...

And, when you need a quiet place to go and relax, there are a few of these available....

Done post-processing for the night, shutting down the PC and heading upstairs...

OK, check out my prior posts and you will get the idea....
This is the fire exit stair well, but I am shutting down and going upstairs....

Lunatic Asylum - wash basin

There were about 999 wash basins, 999 toilets and 999 doors and more windows.  I would hate clenaing day.

Lunatic Asylum - hall of doors

Hall of newer wood doors.
This is the largest cut sandstone structure in the United States and second to the Kremlin.


Hall of older steel doors.
The West Virginia Mental Hospital closed in 1994 with 2600 patients.
