On Friday May 26, 2017 at 10:00am, volunteers at William R Sharpe Hospital and the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum are honoring those who are buried in the three cemeteries near the former Weston State Hospital.

The two organizations began working together to make this event happen for Mental Health Awareness Month AND Memorial Day.

Many of the people who were laid to rest in these cemeteries were not unwanted or unloved, but laid to rest there due to financial stains on the family to return their loved ones home.

TALA receives calls and emails regularly from people with loved ones buried there and knows how important it is to remember these people.

There are hopes that this will be an annual event.

The public is welcome. Please meet in front of the old Weston State Hospital (TALA) at 9:30am.
