Historical Immersion (HI) - Ypsilanti
HI Ypsilanti is the first of many local historical museums we can visit around metro Detroit. Why start with Ypsilanti? Well, going back through the alphabets, Z had a town called Zeeland which is a bit too far for now. Starting with A for Ann Arbor could be too easy; or perhaps Auburn Hills, you may say I prefer my home town too much.
If you still wonder why? Well, Y is a crooked letter... let it tumble in the wind. Hope to see you at Hi Ypsi or HI Ann Arbor or HI Birmingham or HI Canton. Bu the time we get to P, HI Plymouth is in the works as we have a great local there. More good things are coming our way!
Here are some things we can learn:
1. Ypsilanti - Is the name of a Greek General. Who knew?
2. KitchenAid – Not found here, this hands on kitchen will allow us to touch a milk churner, butter maker, stove, and other things that were quite remarkable at the time. If you like ironing, you will be delighted to know that the design has not changed much. A new invention idea?
3. Home – The layout of the home is exquisite from the stairs, the parlor, and the crown moldings;
4. History – The time line for Ypsi starts with artifacts from the Stone Age, industrial factories, and more factories featuring Rosie the Riveters, Heroes like Bob Arvin, Charlie Kettles, and the docent’s son was a student of the former Mayor.
Did I pique your interest? Children are welcome and the event is free. Your company is always invaluable.
