Ypsilanti Heritage Foundation Video Project

The YHFoundation’s Video Project documents mostly folks involved with preservation in Ypsilanti. Jack Harris was the first, talking about the formation of the Heritage Foundation and the early years of creating the historic district. Katherine Howard discussed things relating to developing the Ypsilanti Historical Museum. George Goodman gave recollections regarding the political aspects of adopting the historic district ordinance. Jan Anschuetz discussed the task of adding Ypsilanti’s east side to the historic district around 1978-80. The footage is “in the can” with some editing to be done.
