Forget staged haunted houses this season, why not visit a real haunted Psychiatric Hospital right here in Michigan?

Eloise Psychiatric Hospital was a large complex located in Westland, Michigan. It was named after Eloise Dickerson Davock, the daughter of Detroit’s postmaster.

It operated from 1839 to early 1982. Starting out as a poor house and farm, it eventually developed into an asylum, sanatorium and hospital. In 1832 it was called the Wayne County Poorhouse; in 1872 it was the Wayne County Alms House; in 1886 it was referred to simply as the Wayne County House. In 1913 there were three divisions: The Eloise Hospital (Mental Hospital), the Eloise Infirmary (Poorhouse) and the Eloise Sanatorium (T.B. Hospital) which were collectively called Eloise. In 1945 it was named Wayne County General Hospital and Infirmary at Eloise, Michigan. In 1974 it had two divisions – the Wayne County General Hospital and the Wayne County Psychiatric Hospital. In 1979 it was officially called Wayne County General Hospital with the psychiatric division closing in 1982 .

In its prime, Eloise consisted of 78 buildings on 902 acres with 10,000 patients along with 2,000 staff. It was the largest psychiatric facility in the United States. Unfortunately only 5 of the 78 buildings and the Eloise Cemetery remain. The firehouse, bakery, power plant, commissary and D buildings still stand as of February, 2019.

Presently the site and cemetery are maintained by Morgan Development. Detroit Paranormal Expeditions runs historical tours of the D building

The site and the adjoining Eloise Cemetery are reputed to be haunted.

It also inspired the direct-to-video thriller Eloise (2017 film)

Starring: Eliza Dushku, Robert Patrick, Chace Crawford four friends break into an abandoned insane asylum in search of a death certificate which will grant one of them a large inheritance. However, finding it soon becomes the least of their worries in a place haunted by dark memories.
