A few years back I was traveling through the beautiful town of Eaton Rapids south of Lansing when I spotted a massive second empire mansion in the center of town. I did not know anything about the old building but there was something about it that resonated with me and I had to take a photo of it. It wasn’t until later I found out that it was a home that was converted into a hospital that served the community for over 40 years before it was converted into apartments. I also found out it has a tumultuous past with a history of people reporting strange paranormal events like objects moving and strange unexplained sounds. Some of the rumors of ghosts go back to a tragic day in 1919 when Dr. Blanchard mistakenly stepped into an open elevator shaft and fell to his death.
I found out that the old hospital was recently purchased by a couple working on renovating the old building with plans on converting it to a bed and breakfast. you can learn more about the old hospital and follow their journey on the Stimson Hospital facebook page HERE
