History of Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
LilyPerhaps the most famous story about the asylum is that of Lily, a girl who seemingly lived there for all of her short life. Opinion varies, but it is generally thought that she was born in the asylum to a mother who couldn’t look after her, or was left there as an unwanted child. Lily was cared for by the staff until her tragic death from pneumonia when she was nine years of age (although some contend that Lily died in infancy). Lily reportedly now loves to play with visitors, and many visitors have reported playing “catch” with her in her room. There is a music box in Lily’s room which sometimes plays of its own volition. Witnesses attest to hearing a little girl’s laugh reverberating through the halls. There are plenty of toys in Lily’s room and these have been known to move on their own. Lily, it seems, is a mischievous spirit! She appears to be very polite, though, reportedly saying “Thank you for the snacks” to one local historian who brought her gifts. The voice was captured as an EVP. Other children are said to haunt the floors of the asylum – some have even apparently been known to follow visitors all the way home!
Malevolent SpiritsThe asylum has been the scene of a great number of murders over the years, and it looks like some of the spirits of the murderers are still around. A lavatory is said to be haunted by a psychotic murderer, and the oppressive seclusion cells reportedly house a multi-murderer.
Noises and ApparitionsStaff have described moans and frightening, hysterical laughter coming from empty rooms. Sightings of ghostly apparitions have also been noted. Disturbingly, a psychiatrist has told how after treating a patient who subsequently took their own life, the spirit apparently followed the doctor out of the hospital and all the way home. Apparitions of this poor soul reportedly then began to appear in the doctor’s home, and she says the ghost has followed her each time she has moved house. The spirit is still said to appear to this day.
