Maybury Sanatorium 1921-1969
At the peak of its operation, Maybury Sanatorium employed about 480 people. Nearly half made their home in various buildings on the grounds. Two buildings in this area, the Inn and the Women's Dormitory, provided accommodations for female staff.
The single-story dormitory had rooms for medical attendants and women employed in the kitchens, dining rooms and laundry while dieticians, occupational therapists, technicians and office personnel were housed at the Inn.
"…it requires more than buildings and jobs and sick people to make a sanatorium. There must be spirit, interest, loyalty, vision, accomplishment."
-Dr. H.S. Willis, Superintendent and Medical Director, Maybury Manual, 1941

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.
