Eloise: Poorhouse, Asylum, TB Sanitorium with Joe Oldenburg

Eloise began as the Wayne County Poorhouse in Detroit in the 1830s to care for the needy and indigent. By the mid-1850s it also began housing the insane and moved to Nankin Township. As the 20th century began the tuberculosis hospitals in Detroit were overflowing so Eloise began caring for TB patients.
