Over 1,200 residents died while at the asylum, including young orphans and elders. Their bodies are buried around the property in unmarked graves. A memorial site was created recently by Genesee County to honor those who died at the home.
The facility was closed in 1974 and unoccupied for over two decades. In 2002, the property was purchased by Jeff and Lori Carlson and renamed Rolling Hills. Recently, Sharon Coyle became the owners of the property (you can listen to the audio interview here).
