Looking For A Summer Home? How About This Haunted Mental Asylum?

Have you ever thought about having your very own summer home? A little spot where you can get away from the world? Yeah, me too.

But what if you want something a little less traditional than a lakefront lodge or an oceanfront condo? What if haunted houses are more your thing? If that sounds like you, then you'll want to check out the Eloise Complex, which is currently for sale in beautiful Westland, Michigan.

This building is a real stunner. For just $1.5 million, she can be yours.

The property is next to an 18-hole golf course, a fire station, a decommissioned power plant, and two maintenance buildings. The facility itself is also full of ghosts.

The property opened back in 1832, at which point it was known as the Wayne County Poorhouse.

By 1913, the facility had expanded to include the Eloise Hospital (which functioned as a mental asylum), the Eloise Infirmary (which was formerly another poorhouse), and the Eloise Sanitarium (which once served as a tuberculosis clinic).

As you might have guessed, the buildings that made up the Eloise Complex hosted mass amounts of pain and suffering.

Most of those who lived and died in the Eloise Complex were buried in unmarked graves on the corner of the property.

At its peak, the Eloise Complex was comprised of more than 70 buildings, which were connected to each other through underground tunnels.

The tunnels are now sealed shut, but they're said to contain a plethora of strange medical equipment. According to local legend, when a few buildings were torn down in the 1970s, construction crews found jars of human body parts, along with extensive records and photographs of horrifying experiments.

Needless to say, those who visit the facility at night experience more than a little bit of ghostly activity.

All that's left today is the massive main building, and for a hefty price, it can be yours.

The listing for the property calls it a "phenomenal redevelopment opportunity."

Ah, I wish I could buy that! Just imagine how amazing it'd be to have people over there for Halloween parties.
