Tavern providing traveler's accommodations in or near Ypsilanti; mentioned in a traveller's account of America, 1837.
- Society in America, Harriet Martineu, p 250.
At Ypsilanti I picked up an Ann Arbor newspaper. It was badly printed but its contents were pretty good and it could happen nowhere out of America that so raw a settlement as that at Ann Arbor where there is difficulty in procuring decent accommodations should have a newspaper.
