From 1839 to the late 1970's , the grounds at Michigan Ave. and Merriman in Westland served thousands of Detroits needy, diseased and mentally ill. Though through that time the facility grew to 75 buildings and then reduced to 4, the mystery surrounding the Eloise mental facilities have intrigued many.

Many a lost soul are said to haunt the grounds surrounding the four remaining buildings on Eloise's grounds. A cemetery dedicated to some sits virtually unnoticed across Michigan Avenue, a place where many poor unfortunate souls have been buried. Without a name, just a number.

Perhaps the most intrigueing thing about Eloise is
what we do not know, what we may never know, and how we seek to delve deeper into the secrets Eloise keeps. Unfortunately, most if not all of Eloise's records were destroyed with most of the facility itself.What was done to the people who went there for care and kindness we may never know, but can only begin to imagine some of the horrors they faced... I hope in time to come we can answer some of those questions, if nothing else, bring this place back to life with the information we provide.

michigan has been building on the land where this hospital stands. a friend of mine works in a Block Buster video where the cemitary once stood. he always feels very creepy and uneasy in the building at night. he was feeling this before he know the storys of this place. i recently went to see him at work for the first time. it was the first time i have ever went out there before. as i passed by the old building that were still there it gave me chills like you would not believe.

they build a block buster video where the cemetery was but people working there still see and feel things there. they opened up one of the building as a museum and some of the workers there see weird things there all the time. :blink:

Do you know if they allow access to any of the other buildings other than the one that now houses the museum? It would make a good outing for our group.

Crone- they do not allow access to the buildings not in use. Their are a few no tresspassing signs on the power house, fire hall and bakery.

Although local teenagers to this day still like to sneak into the powerhouse, I wouldnt recommend it. There is a State Police station on the corner and the security guards are trained to look out for that kind of stuff. If a person is caught in the act of B&E or trespassing then there will be legal repercussions.

I have heard different things about access, but walking around the grounds as long as you heed any trespassing signs and words of caution shouldnt get you in trouble. If they ask you what you are up to they will probably let you go on your way if you tell them you are just looking around. They may threaten to take your camera, it's happened to me. The Friends Of Eloise group however, is not keen on the whole ghost angle that draws alot of attention to Eloise, so if you go perhaps it is best not to mention the word, lol.

OH, btw, is thete anywhere on the forum I can formally introduce myself? :D
