Louis Bennett Library – Side Trip for Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Chapter 4

We arrived in Pittsburgh for Chapter 4 (Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum) of Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums on a Saturday and had a quick return flight the next morning.

Weston has a beautiful old library downtown. This is the sort of place you want a library to be. I come from a town where all the libraries are square, concrete buildings, and if you’re lucky the main branch will resemble some sort of space ship motif. It is just not right at all.

But here, in Weston, they know what a library should be.

This building called out to me, beckoning me to enter.
