Sadness In Elyria

William Ely, grandson of Heman Ely, moves into this fine home in 1882 with his new bride. When she dies suddenly three years later, the grief-stricken William vows that the house will remain exactly as she had left it.

William A. Ely home(after years of neglect) As years turn to decades, cobwebs and dust pile up. Mold slowly destroys the rugs, upholstery, curtains, and wallpaper. The sad house will finally be taken down over 50 years later.
