The Parish House Inn, the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area B&B is "The Real McCoy"

The Parish House Inn, the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area bed and breakfast is located in the second oldest city in Michigan where many interesting events occurred. This is little know fact I share in recogition of Black History month this February.
Elijah McCoy (1843-1929) who was a resident of Ypsilanti and an African-American, was the inventor and patent holder for numerous mechanical devices including the self-lubricator known as "The Real McCoy"....meaning the real thing!

A visit to Historic Ypsilanti will surprise you.
