I recently had to travel out to Charlottesville, Virginia for a conference and decided to swing by two large historical sites in West Virginia: Weston State Hospital and Sweet Springs Resort.

Weston State Hospital

Weston State Hospital is now known as the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, and is open for tours.

Sweet Springs Resort

Originally opened as a health resort, over the years Sweet Springs served as a sanatorium, hospital, and nursing home and drug treatment center.
