The terrifying story of Lake Shawnee, the cursed amusement park

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia is said to be the most haunted location in the United States.  Shut down in 1994 it is said that "ice pick lobotomies" took place here. A doctor would insert an ice pick into a human brain and with a few sweeping motions render the patient a vegetable. Screams can be heard inside the Asylum as well as sounds of gurneys being pushed down the halls.

Charleston, WV. This dome is runner up to PA. It's gold and black and very stunning. The replica of the Liberty Bell in foreground is one of nine that were given to the various states.

Built in 1854, the Anna Jarvis House was the birthplace of Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother's Day, and also served as the field headquarters of General George McClelland during his 1861 western Virginia campaign during the American Civil War. His troops were encamped across the road in what is now known as the Ocean Pearl Felton Historic Park. During the time General McClelland occupied the house, it remained the focal point of the entire civil war.
