Ghost hunters and friends Peggy Pittman arm themselves with ghostly gauging gear such as a K-II Meter, designed to detect changes in the electromagnetic field, which ghost hunters say can indicate paranormal activity to find out if the Weston State Hospital is haunted.

A show called “Ghost Adventures Live” scheduled to air at 8 p.m. Friday on The Travel Channel will feature footage shot at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, formerly Weston State Hospital. The asylum offers regular ghost tours and adventures. Visit http://www.trans-alleghenylunaticasylum.com for information.

Haunting at Central State

Oct 28, 2009

The Indiana Paranormal Group investigates Central State Hospital as Justin Potts and his team are forced to rely solely on flashlights because no light enters the inside. The temperature inside of the buildings is always colder, he said. The tunnels are tight and narrow at some points, forcing those entering down onto hands and knees to get through. Vision is limited. Rooms seem to have been abandoned in a rush; traces of how life in the hospital once was can still be found in the place.

Shaun, Nathan and Jason investigate Pennhurst State School and Hospital, a decrepit mental asylum in Eastern Pennsylvania. The facility was closed in 1986 after decades of abuse, neglect and torture under the guise of “treatment” were reported. Ever since, strange sightings and unexplained phenomena have been witnessed. Our team relives horrific abuses such as prolonged restraint and electroshock therapy in the hopes of experiencing the paranormal legends themselves. Then the team travels deep into the heart of Manchac Swamp, a haunted swamp just outside of New Orleans where they bury alive one of their own in a mass gravesite so they can contact the souls of the residents of an entire town wiped away by a massive hurricane in 1915.
