Our History

Dearborn’s roots extend from 18th century European farmsteads along the Rouge River and the Sauk Trail, a thoroughfare that linked many Native nations. Over the two-plus centuries since then, emigrants from many nations shaped the city into a major industrial center and helped Henry Ford to make Dearborn into an auto manufacturing powerhouse. Dearborn continues to evolve today as a thriving city with a diversifying economic base.
