Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

On September 8, 2012, Port City Paranormal and friends visited the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. Our interest in the history of the “Moral Treatment of the Insane” and our past asylum investigations, had us eager to compare the two haunted asylums and the forgotten voices inside…
Although public investigations are not the best circumstance for research, we wanted to experience TALA for ourselves and to record our investigation. We came home with striking evidence of paranormal activity.

On this investigation we were testing Doug’s new Head Cam set ups. We had posted this sample on line to show how well it worked, when a friend noticed an anomaly…..

Just more proof that it helps to be in the right place at the right time!!

As we continue to review our recordings for more evidence, we found this haunted asylum was extremely active the night we were there. Quite by accident, caught this extraordinary paranormal video clip of a man dressed only in a patient gown wandering about the ward. We are still searching for the history of patients that lived at Trans AlleghenyLunatic Asylum. If you would like to discuss this video please go to the Port City Paranormal FB pages! What do you think? Is this an active or a residual spirit?

This investigation was a combined effort of

There was large crowd at the asylum that night, but not all of the paranormal evidence can be easily dismissed. Spirit voices (EVP) were recorded and corroborate psychic communications. Although evidence obtained during public investigations can be questionable, we have included some EVP we think are worth listening to. Please use good headphones and decrease your base setting for best playback.
