Ypsi’s Working Women Walking Tour

Long before "Rosie the Riveter”, many of the largest industrial employers in Ypsilanti were of women. Hundreds of women and many girls worked in Ypsi's woolen mills, the Scharff Tag and Stay Press factories. In addition working women, black and white, immigrant and native-born, were laundresses, cooks, domestics, clerks and dressmakers. Join historian Matt Siegfried for a walking tour visiting the sites of factories and work places, strikes and social halls, homes and boarding houses where these women lived and labored around the beginning of the twentieth century.
