Episode 12: Vampires and Asylums (Part 1)

Greetings! In this episode, I travel to a couple little towns in West Virginia, home of horror author, Gary Lee Vincent (of the Darkened Hills book series). I visit Clarksburg, Weston, and Salem. All three of these areas inspired Gary's books in the Darkened series.
Because there is so much footage, I divided this expedition into two episodes. In this one, we discuss some of the historical inspiration behind Gary's books and visit an old asylum. The Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum was built during the Civil War and closed in 1994. It now serves as a museum to tour and get a little history on!

Next week, we will travel to the areas of Clarksburg and Salem, and the places that inspired Darkened Hills...

Check out Gary Lee Vincent's work:

CORRECTION: Gary Lee Vincent is actually from Clarksburg...Salem is a town near Clarksburg and was merely an inspiration for Darkened Hills.
