Dearborn, Michigan

48120

The Dearborn area emerged as a community when it was chosen as the site for the Detroit Arsenal in the early 1830s. In 1838, the area around the arsenal was incorporated and named Dearbornville in honor of Major General Henry Dearborn, a distinguished physician and Revolutionary War hero who served as President Thomas Jefferson's Secretary of State.

 

Henry Ford ushered in Dearborn's next major era by choosing his hometown as the main site for his automotive business. As Ford Motor Company grew, Dearborn became the location of its World Headquarters.

 

Today Dearborn is still a world famous industrial center, a site of multi-million dollar commercial complexes, home to leading tourist attractions and colleges as well as an ideal residential community.
