About Eloise Asylum
Located in Westland, Michigan, the Eloise Asylum has a long and tragic history. Once known as the Wayne County Poorhouse, the facility first opened its doors in 1839. Residents of the county with little means flocked to the poorhouse for sanctuary. Over the following years, the grounds expanded to include nearby farmland. By 1913, the complex was better known as ‘Eloise,’ in honor of the postmaster’s daughter, Eloise Dickerson Davock. Eventually the Eloise grounds became entirely self-sufficent. The complex consisted of a fully functioning farm and community–even its own fire and police departments.
The facility eventually morphed into the Eloise Psychiatric Hospital, where students from Wayne State University and the University of Michigan could learn about innovative advances in medicine. Eloise was one of the first hospitals in the country to use X-ray machines and developed a reputation as being a leader in cutting edge technology. But darker practices were also taking place within the hospital’s walls. At Eloise, patients were sometimes subject to highly controversial and cruel practices, such as insulin therapy, hydrotherapy, even lobotomies. Over time, the hospital drew attention and criticism due to the poor conditions of the facility. Eloise Psychiatric Hospital finally closed its doors in 1979. Wayne County General Hospital, which existed on Eloise grounds, continued running until 1986.
