Traversing the back roads of Southeastern Michigan I stumbled upon this group of old abandoned silos on the corner of 5 Mile and Ridge road in Plymouth Township. I see old barns and silos all around Michigan, and wonder about their history, unfortunately I never find out anything and it remains a mystery. With these strange group of silos I did find some interesting info. Doing some research on the internets I found some references to the “Haunted Silos” which claims the silos were part of a prison farm built by the Detroit House of Corrections and the silos were part of a large complex built in 1920. the complex was used until a new prison was built down the road in 1931. I don’t know if it’s haunted, but I can see why it go the moniker if it was part of an abandoned correctional facility.
