Established in the 1830's, historic Depot Town is a favorite Ypsilanti neighborhood for all age groups because of its convenient location in the center of the action in the City of Ypsi. Restaurants, cafes, bars, stores, museums and much more are located right inside Depot Town which makes the neighborhood an exciting blend of residential and commercial property. Cross St would be the main drag where the majority of shops and restaurants are located, several of these historic buildings are mixed-use with loft style apartments/condos above shops/restaurants below. Adjacent streets to Cross (N River, Norris, Oak, Maple) are primarily residential properties with primarily late-1800s to early-1900s vintage homes; Victorian farmhouses are a common style here and many of these Victorians here have been diligently restored with colorful exteriors and intricate balusters, trim, gables and ornate woodworking. Ypsilanti values its historic architecture and Depot Town is part of the City's historic district which requires all external modifications (roofing, siding, windows, porches and decks) to be submitted to the historic district committee ("HDC") for oversight and approval of exterior projects.
If you want to live close to the action just a block or two from the town's best cafes and bars, Depot Town should be at the top of your list. Feel free to call us if you're interested in finding or selling a home in Ypsilanti's historic Depot Town district.
