Ypsilanti Water Tower Historic Site. Believed to be an inscription on the marble statue of Ypsilanti. The inscription reads: "DEDICATED TO THE CITY OF YPSILANTI BY THE ORDER OF AHEPA SEPTEMBER 1928". AHEPA stands for the American Hellenic Progressive Association, and their mission is to promote Hellenism, Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence.
Ypsilanti (1793- 1832) was a hero of the Greek War of Independence. The Ypsilanti Water Tower (1890) was named in his honor, as was the town of Ypsilanti itself (1829).
