In This Issue…

Ypsilanti Dairies: Over the years there were many dairy industries in Ypsilanti but in today's Yellow Pages none are listed.
Emmanuel Lutheran Church: The story of Emmanuel Lutheran Church begins with the early German Lutheran families that immigrated to Washtenaw County in the early 1800s.

Scent of Minerva: Another story of Minerva Dow who some say still resides at 220 North Huron Street.
History Changes Hands: Over 165 years ago, a small boy seized a piece of cloth in Philadelphia and saved it from disappearing from history. The “Harrison Banner” again changes hands.

Ypsilanti Rocks and Rolls: Several earthquakes have been felt in Ypsilanti and earthquakes have been documented in Michigan as early as 1638.
