Some call it a "haunted barn" and some call it the "haunted silos." Either way, it's a creepy place to visit at night.

These connected four silos are on the corner of 5 Mile Rd. and Ridge Rd. in Northville Township near Plymouth.

Where did they come from? Why are they standing alone in a field?

The Detroit House of Corrections built a "prison farm" on that property in 1920 which included a structure (barn) with those four silos. The first crop of prisoners were forced to be kept in tents rather than a wood, brick or concrete structure. In 1930 a newer prison facility was constructed further east on Ridge Road. All buildings were torn down all except those silos but you can still find some of the old foundations if you pay a visit.

Curious nighttime visitors tend to get spooked thanks to the woods surrounding it and the animal sounds that come from 'em. If you wanna visit - but not at night - it's pretty interesting.

As for haunted? Probably not. It's the creepiness about it that gets tongues waggin' about any hauntings...otherwise, there are no stories about it, other than the usual  "oooh it's scary" stuff.
