View of the Past
FROM OUR E-MAIL: Attached is a post card of the Detroit, Ypsilanti,
Ann Arbor & Jackson
Railroad station at Eloise. According to HISTORY OF ELOISE (1913)
Page 357, the first electric rail car reached Eloise on April 24,
1898. The motorman (driver) on that car was Daniel Sullivan a former
employee. Dan Sullivan is my great-grandfather and I have the original
HISTORY OF ELOISE book that was given to him. - THOMAS P.
J. Seymour hospital ("C" Building) Submitted by Kathleen
Abbey. Dr. Seymour organized the first medical staff at Eloise.
Therefore, a hospital on the grounds was appropriately deemed the
William J. Seymour Hospital. You can read more about the hospital
in our detailed Building
NEW Eloise Historical Marker!
Thanks to Malena and Partybag for these pics! :)
We here at talesfeloise.com simply wish to document the historical
value of the Eloise Complex. We haven't directly mentioned any ghosts
or confirmed any sighting. Again, we are doing the site because
of the historical value we feel Eloise has and thought it should
have it's own piece of webspace. We realize that a place like Eloise
would generate that type of interest. This site does not revolve
around those ghost stories at all.
no way do we condone or encourage the destruction of property on
Eloise grounds or any other property mentioned on this site! Do
not email us inquiring about the best way to get into the abandoned
buildings or the Kay Beard. I recommend visiting the museum inside
the Kay Beard and to avoid anything that would bring about legal
repercussions! This site is informational and wishes to document
the historical value of the Institution. Ghosts are rumored to roam
the grounds of
what once was Eloise.. Leave the hell-raising to them!
hope you enjoy the site!!
