Laundry (1916-1948-present)

1916 Laundry

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.
