Courteous, knowledgeable, fun tour guide and staff! We had a blast learning while ghost hunting. We aren't professional ghost hunters, but we had an AWESOME time and experience.

Took my daughter to TALA for her 17th birthday. We are not ghost hunters but love old creepy places and to get a good scare. Very creepy place, interesting history.

This was a last minute idea while driving through scenic West Virginia. I called ahead and caught the last tour of the season. The check in wasn't long, got to explore a little before 90 minute guided tour. It's very creepy and sad, but also...More

Amazing place to visit. Every time I'm there, I learn more of the history. Whether you are going to visit for the Haunted House, a Paranormal Tour, a Historical Tour, or ect.. you'll have a great time. The building in itself is worth the drive.

I was reading that the overnight tours are from 9 pm until 5 am. Are there any places to sleep or lie down during the time you are there? Not sure my older parents would make it through. I'd hate to pay for the family as a gift and they have to leave early.
