ABOUT THE MICHIGAN FIREHOUSE MUSEUM
In 1898 a brick firehouse was constructed at the corner of Cross and Huron Streets in Ypsilanti, MI. It was an important location near the Huron River and just a short jaunt to the booming Depot Town neighborhood which was a prominent train stop for the Detroit to Chicago line. The firehouse would serve the community until 1975. From 1976 to 1998 it was held in private ownership and finally, in 2002, was transformed into the Michigan Firehouse Museum.

According to staff members, there are a number of unexplainable occurrences that have happened at the museum. Paranormal groups have tried for years to investigate the museum and they are finally getting their chance. Now is your chance to investigate the 80,000 square foot museum for yourself. There are still a few VIP tickets available, but going quickly. Buy yours now here!
Grab Dinner Before The Hunt: I know, from personal experience, that Ollies Food + Spirits in historic Ypsilanti Depot Town, is, without a doubt, haunted. I have had many experiences in that building as have others. I will be sharing that story soon. If you are interested in investigating the restaurant please drop me an email.
EVENT PROCEEDS FOR GOOD
Al Dyer, museum director, would like to use the money raised from this event towards repairing the historic museum tower. If it is repaired and brought up to code groups would be able to investigate that area as well. Regardless, any proceeds from the event will be used to continue the work the museum does.
