Event Details 
Tour Michigan Ladder Company and its Historic Building
Enjoy an interesting evening at a hidden treasure of Ypsilanti. Michigan Ladder Company has been in operation since 1901. They have served as a witness to the changes happening all around them -- delivery wagons becoming trucks, B-24 bomber planes overhead before going off to fight in WW II, trains passing and then not, businesses coming and going. Yet, they have made their fine products at the same location for the past 115 years. All of their ladders are made up to a quality -- not down to a price.We thought it would be fun to learn more about how they have survived the changes in their business and community and see the historical building they still occupy. Tom Harrison, CEO and owner, will talk with us about his company. Afterwards, we will walk to dinner at the ABC (Arbor Brewing Company) Microbrewery, 720 Norris,Ypsilanti.
