This Creepy Asylum In Michigan Is Still Standing… And Still Disturbing
Editor’s Note: The building was demolished in 2019 but you can take a look at the photos and video below to see what once stood at this spot in Detroit.
The Northville Psychiatric Hospital opened in 1952 and was considered one of the finest facilities in the country for treating psychiatric patients. Alas, 50 years later the place shuttered, but left behind a disturbing, and possibly other-worldly presence. The facility now sits derelict and subject to trespassers who are curious to see this haunting place.
