The 1916 asylum laundry building is one of the very last old
structures to remain standing in 2013. It was replaced by a new laundry (1948-2005),
nearby but further west. However, the 1916 laundry was not torn down; it was
expanded into a larger building (sandwiched between two newer sections),
becoming “The Auditorium and Occupational Therapy Building.” Today, it houses
Western Michigan University’s surplus store and ROTC program.
