Ypsilanti -- 1800 to the Present -- A Rich & Unique History
Begin the evening with a guided tour of the Ypsilanti Historical Society Museum and Archives to learn about the complex history of Ypsilanti first founded as a trading post. Then we’ll take a short walk to the Ypsilanti Ladies Literary Club to hear former City Councilman and Ypsilanti historian Bill Nickels tell the story of the unique university and manufacturing town. Finally, Ypsilanti Mayor Beth Bashert will describe Ypsilanti today – its growing economy and downtown, new industries with a focus on tech and the arts, changes on the Huron River, and a future built on a rich and unique history.
