Alkie Hall

The South Lyon Herald, October 13, 1938
For many residents of Eloise the institution was akin to an open-campus school of hard knocks. Inmates frequently left the grounds to imbibe in the hard medicine of alcohol. While local saloons were the establishment of choice to procure their drink, in this case the inmates apparently chose to drink moonshine or something worse, such as rubbing alcohol, and paid for it with their lives.
