The Maybury State Park in Northville, Michigan boasts several scenic trails and popular outdoor recreation activities. But what many visitors don't realize is that before it was a state park, it was a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients.
To this day, several historical markers and even some scattered remains of the former sanatorium remain throughout the park's many trails. In addition to the physical remnants, locals will tell you that the spirits of patients also remain. Their lost souls are said to still roam the trails at night, manifesting in the form of dark shadows, glowing eyes, and eerie voices and noises.
We investigated the park last week, and walked away with impressive evidence:
A majority of the above investigation was where the infirmary used to be. An approximate 10 minute walk, this spot is hard to miss, as there is a sign relaying the historical information. There are also bricks and foundation from the sanatorium on the side of the trail.
It appeared to us that the kids, perhaps those that passed through the Children's Camp, still remain. An investigator experienced being touched and tapped on the elbow, the height where a kid likely would. The spirit box also clearly said "we're kids."
Could the Maybury State Park still be haunted?
The park is open until 10pm, and remains a safe, open-air location to check out amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. If you do plan on visiting, please remember to adhere to the posted hours, and remember to physical distance and wear a mask if you must be within 6 feet of strangers.
