Ypsilanti Historical Museum
This Victorian style mansion was built in the 1860's by Asa Dow who came from Chicago to go into business with D.L. Quirk. Following the death of his wife, Mr. Dow sold the house to the Lambert Barnes family who lived in it for 47 years (1875-1922.) The museum contains portraits of the Norris Family dating back to the 1850's; Lyman Norris was a plaintiff attorney in the Dred Scott trial.
