Roney's Point was owned by a very prominent Wheeling brewer by the name of Henry Schmulbach. There is lots of very interesting information on the web about him Below is a link to the home when it was his.

i use to play in both of those buildings when i was a child, for many years, my aunt lived behind the tb building at the top of the hill, the old crazy place we would call it, had cages in the basement and there was an underground tunnel that went under the road to another building that was torn down, also on the way up the road one will notice a turn around, that is where a young black man back in the 80's had his face and privates blown off, by a guy names bob mcconell. i still go up there becuse my aunt still lives there, and i go to those buildings whenever i want, lots of ghosts but they know me.

Yes I live very close by there and there is a old insane asylum up on Roneys Point rd. on county farm rd. It was first used by one of the local breweries. then sold to the county and used as a TB hospital. after that until the fire around 1976 it was used as a state insane asylum. here are some pictures
and here is the web site of a movie coming out his year featuring the asylum
Just as a precaution there is a county sheriff that lives near by on the dead end road you have to pass his house to get to the asylum. and it is state property.
The cop that lives there is a State Trooper for West Virgina and you have to have permission from him to be on the property i live in the foulton section of Wheeling and have verbal permission to be on the property at any time i please. I am a ghost hunter and spent hours up there in the mourge and other parts of the building

I was recently discussing the old, abandoned insane asylum up by Roney's Point.
There are two buildings up there that are abandoned. One looks like a school, the other is rumored to be an old asylum.
Does anybody know which is which, and where I could find any information about the buildings? I am very curious of the history....
I lived at this property for over 10 years my father was asked to be the care taker of all the land and we lived in the house that used to be the nurse's chamber I can answer any questions you may have and more

I use to go there when i was a teenager. I lived in that area, the rumor from the valley is that Charlie Manson was institutionanlized there and that he caused the fire that burnt the place down. He was only there for a few month's but he "apparently" was the reason for the fire. I have heard many weird stories about this pace from friends and relatives, also I believe the woods around it are also haunted.(I.E> the devils tree, the hidden tunnel to the church, the blood dripping from the basement wall, the clean room, and the man in the woods)I have been there may times and I can tell all, just find me.... I cant give out any contacts for fear of the authorities but if u really want to know u can find me.
Yo, I wanna know. In Wheeling WV. Directions?

Does anyone know how to get permission to be on the grounds from the law enforcement officer living up there? I am a professional photographer who was taking shots on Roney's point run road today and stumbled up there and didn't even know it existed until I did some digging around online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
