Last night I was lucky enough to purchase five genuine bricks from Depot Town’s Historic Thompson Building for only $25 (reduced from $50 for a quick sale). The guy who sold them to me said that all proceeds would go to help defray the redevelopment costs associated with the restoration project.
I had no idea anyone was doing this, and am very surprised that it hasn’t been more widely publicized. I would encourage everyone to get involved and do your part to help save this precious piece of Ypsilanti’s history.
Be forewarned, however, the gentleman who sold me the bricks didn’t seem like a person who deals with crowds — or people for that matter — on a regular basis. He was quite jittery when we made our transaction. I attributed this to nerves, or perhaps he was exhausted after working such a long day. I mean, when I bought these bricks, it was after midnight. Poor guy. From the way he was dressed, I think was with the EMU Historic Preservation Program.
