"Pause and reflect. Remember those who lived and worked on this site, long ago razed and returned to nature. Their successes and sacrifices influenced future generations in ways we will never know. Observe the blowing leaves and see the past's children skipping by; hear their laughter in the breeze. As you gaze upon the beauty of this setting, be thankful and never forget those who went before you."
Children's Unit from Robin Norden, whose grandparents met at Maybury Sanatorium

There isn't much left of it these days, aside from a couple scraps of rubble here and there in the woods. The beautiful wooded hills have been preserved for public recreation however, and it may be fondly remembered by most Metro-Detroiters as the one and only place that they ever rode a horse.(Submitted on July 21, 2021, by J.T.
