90 Maple StreetThe railroad came to Ypsilanti in 1838. The inaugural ride was truly a distinguished party that included the 19 year old "Boy Governor," Stevens T. Mason and John D. Pierce, the first State Superintendent of Education. Their arrival on a cold February day was greeted with speeches and celebration. On the return trip to Detroit, the train broke down and the dignitaries were forced to travel the rest of the way on foot.
