My son and I have been doing ghost tours and dabbling in ghost hunts ever since or first encounter. Trans-Allegheny has a wonderful history that would have made the twelve-hour round-trip drive worth it but we got some great video and a couple of decent photos. Of course, the scratches that my son got made it a little more interesting.

Will ghost adventures come back but b told to respect spirits? I had my husband's head light stolen the day we toured or did someone turn it in ?

This was a very interesting place to visit. There are tours of all kind here. It is an historical building that once was a mental hospital and is claims to be haunted. It has been featured on several of the Ghost Hunter episodes. They also put on a Haunted House in one of the building during Halloween.

My husband has wanted to go for years but I was never really into the paranormal. I refuse to go to a haunted house at halloween so when he wanted to go on a tour while we were staying at the Stonewall Resort for our anniversary weekend I was dreading it but it ended up being very informative and an...

That was my first trip that my husband and I ever did together like that. I loved it. That was my Christmas present he did for me. I love doing that together.

The staff is excellent. If you want to intetact with ghosts this is the place to go. My first ghost hunting event and it was excellent. If you go in the winter make sure to dress warm. We plan to go back.

I love TALA! I can't visit this beautiful building enough. I have done several overnight ghost hunts and plan do to many more. The owners are doing wonderful things to the building. It is a beautiful piece of architecture to see. I do have to say Rebecca and her staff are just awesome!!!!!
