Weston hospital plans include casino, name change
By Anna Sale
Morgantown contractor Joe Jordan bought the 150 year-old Weston state hospital last August. Now, his daughter, Rebecca Jordan, has moved up from Florida to oversee renovations on the property. The first step is installing a new roof on the building, but there are big plans – including shops, tours, a hotel, and a casino. She also says they have renamed the hospital the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, which was also the name of the hospital in the 19th century.
