West Fork River Bridge
Posted August 3, 2015, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I thought I recognized this bridge. It is adjacent to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. The Asylum, which was later renamed the Weston State Hospital is now a museum. If you visit this bridge, be sure to take a tour of the Asylum! (or vice-versa).
