Looming over what was once the town of Phryteville is the ancestral home to the Phryte family, known as Phryte Manor. For over 200 years, this exquisite Victorian architecture had been expanded and added onto as more rooms were needed for new family members. Over time the manor became a labyrinth of odd shaped hallways, secret passageways that lead to nowhere and doors that open to brick walls. When the plague came through Phryteville it took the lives of nearly the entire town, including members of the Phryte family, leaving many parts of the manor remaining only half completed. So that you don’t get lost in this maze-like manor, stay close to your friends, as members of the Phryte family still reside here.
Welcome to the Phryte Doll Company, Where porcelain Phryte Dolls were made by the Phryte family back in the Victorian Era.
The Phryte family had the gift of making life size dolls seem as if they were real. Customers, many of them parents who had lost a child to the plague or other tragedies, would come from across America and around the world to have the Phrytes make them a “twin doll” so they could feel as if their child was still with them. Some customers would even bring their deceased child’s hair so the Phryte’s could sew the hair into the doll, hoping to never lose the scent of their child. As the whole town was plagued by disease, Augustus Phryte, the sole heir to the Phryte family, lost his young daughter, Grievance Phryte. As Augustus mourned for Grievance, gossip quickly swirled around town that he had turned the corpse of his daughter into a life-size, realistic Phryte Doll, including using her eyes, teeth and hair. Enter if you dare and see just how realistic these dolls are.
The Phryte Wing at Sunnydale Hospital is something everyone in Phryteville wishes didn’t exist, as it is the most gruesome part of all of Phryteville. As bloodlines go, the Phryte family has an extremely long one, cursed with genetic oddities and mental illness. In an effort to cure the family, they built the Phryte Wing. Instead of curing them, it made things worse, the Phryte Family Curse caused the human body to distort and twist in a painful debilitating horror, where death was slow and painful.
Phryte Wing is considered one of the most haunted structures in Michigan and a favorite of paranormal investigation teams. Come see for yourself what the paranormals see.
Behind the haunted castle and on the outskirts of what was known as the town of Phryteville sits the abandoned Phryte Garden. Come walk the garden that sits next to Voorhees Lake if you dare. Groundskeepers swear that after dark they can hear cries coming from the nearby Phryte Family Cemetery and that they see children laughing and playing on the school grounds. Don’t be surprised if, as you walk through the garden, you hear screams or feel the earth moving from under you. Watch your step!!
