Unearthing Grave Markers Near Eloise; Hopes for Site Recognition as a Cemetery

Grave sites near Eloise featured on Channel 4.
A few days ago on our local Channel 4 WDIV news, a feature ran on the rediscovery of grave markers near the closed Eloise Hospital/Sanitarium.

Twelve volunteers are working to unearth the markers and to get Wayne County to recognize the site as a cemetery. The group has permission to uncover the grave markers. Currently, about 400 graves have been marked; there could be up to 7,000.

You can see the news report feature and read more at Channel 4's website using the link above.

See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
