What is an Interurban?

To find the authentic answer to this question and much more, you are invited to attend the Spring quarterly meeting of the Ypsilanti Historical Society on Sunday, May 15, 2005 at 2:00 p.m. The featured program is on a fascinating topic that is not only related to the history of Ypsilanti, but greatly impacted its growth and development.

Our speaker is Richard Andrews, a noted authority and lecturer on the Interurban. Mr. Andrews' interest in rail transportation began during his childhood and has become a lifelong passion. He has assisted in the creation of several books on the subject of the Michigan lines. More recently he has helped develop two books on Detroit Street Cars and four books on the Detroit United Railway System.

Mr. Andrews was employed by AAA of Michigan for 32 years in the Travel Department and is a member of several local and national railroad clubs. Please mark this date on your calendar-Sunday, May 15, 2005 at 2:00 pm. Bring a friend and enjoy this interesting and informative oral history and slide presentation. And as always, there will be delicious refreshments and a chance to visit with our speaker following the meeting.

See, hear, feel and live a part of the rich history of Ypsilanti.
