The Ypsilanti Water Tower is known far and wide for its historical significance and its...unusual shape.  89.1 WEMU's Bob Eccles recently had the chance to tour this remarkable structure.

The annual Ypsilanti Heritage Festival kicks-off on Friday and the celebration will run through the weekend.  It's a perfect time to take a look back at some of the elements that have helped create the identity of this Washtenaw County community.
