Another Landmark has disappeared

This story appeared in the Ypsilanti Daily Press of Thursday, January 3, 1907

One of the oldest homesteads in this city, that owned by Miss Helen Post, on the corner of Hamilton and Pearl streets, and for years the Hewitt residence, was moved this morning by Phillip Duffy to a site near the gas works (the the city DPW yard). This house was built by Cornelius Earl, who is now in his nineties, some time in the eighteen thirities, and was one of Ypsilanti's landmarks.
