June 25 Ypsilanti Heritage Foundation Historic Home Tour to be memorable event.

 The YHF (Ypsilanti Heritage Foundation) Historic Home Tour is coming soon and promises to be a memorable event in Ypsilanti. Featured will be the renowned designs of local architect Ward Swarts. Tour goers will visit four mid-century homes. Although the homes may have interior similarities, structurally they are unique.

The YHF tour will also include three historically significant businesses located in downtown Ypsilanti. Each of the three downtown businesses are within easy walking distance of each other. Landline Creative Labs located in downtown is located in the Michigan Bell phone company building that was constructed in 1928. The building features a light fixture constructed from a telephone pole and glass telephone insulators. The fantastic locally owned Go! Ice Cream parlor is located in the building that once housed the People's State Bank which went out of business during the Great Depression. Last, check out Ypsilanti's Growing Hope Farmers Marketplace which is comfortably situated in an old warehouse that was once a showroom for the Studebaker.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at these Ypsilanti locations: Norton's Flowers, Eyrie, Cultivate Coffee & Tap House, Haab's, Materials, Salt City Antiques and Aubree's on Whitaker Rd. In Ann Arbor at Downtown Home & Garden. Learn more here. On the day of the tour you can purchase tickets in front of the Towner House on N. Huron St. Towner House will receive funds from the tour for restoration.

 Check out the YHF Historic Home Tour June 25th in Ypsilanti! You'll have great time!
