Thanks for your interest in the Ypsilanti Freighthouse!

The City of Ypsilanti took control of this wonderful building in March of 2020. The City is still operating the facility as a rental hall and community space, and you can inquire about usage through their website here

The Friends of the Ypsilanti Freighthouse helped caretake, manage, fundraise and restore this 120+ year-old building from 1996 until early 2020. 


The mission of the Friends of the Ypsilanti Freighthouse is to preserve the heritage of the Freighthouse through fostering inclusive community participation by providing an environmentally sound gathering place for recreation, celebration, arts, education and local activities to increase opportunity for personal and collective growth in the Depot Town community.

The FOYF has been tirelessly committed to helping raise funds for the Freighthouse construction and operating expenses, and serving as facilitators for all of the various requirements by the City, the State, the Historic District Committee, and the public.
