A Walking Tour of Ypsilanti’s Historic Business Districts   

Join local historian James Mann on a walking tour of the two historic business districts in Ypsilanti: Depot Town and Downtown. The tour will begin on River Street at the former Michigan Central Railroad Depot. Our group will pass through Depot Town and stroll south along Huron Street to Michigan Avenue. We will then tour the central business district of the city. Afterwards, the group will return to Depot Town by way of Riverside Park, ending where we began. Along the way James will recount the history of some of the buildings, as well as share stories of the people who frequented them and events which occurred there. Participants should gather at the depot on River Street near Cross Street and be prepared to walk about 1.5 miles. Metered parking is available in the Maple Street lot north of the depot.  

Please note: This is an in-person, off-site field trip. Enrollment is limited to 15 attendees. 

James T. Mann is the author of nine books about Washtenaw County history, including Wicked Ypsilanti, Wicked Washtenaw, and Ypsilanti, a History in Pictures. He also conducts walking tours of Ypsilanti’s Highland Cemetery in conjunction with holidays such as Memorial Day and Halloween.
