about Dearborn

Dearborn is a city of nearly 98,000 people located in the Metro Detroit metropolitan area and Wayne County, Michigan. The city is the hometown of Henry Ford and the world headquarters of the Ford Motor Company, and the site of a University of Michigan campus as well as Henry Ford Community College.

Dearborn is home to over 29,000 Arab-Americans, the second largest concentration within the U.S (New York, New York has nearly 70,000). Arabs first settled here to work in the automotive industry. In January of 2005 a new Arab American National Museum will open.

Dearborn is home to the Ford Rouge Plant, built by Henry Ford to make Ford Model T components, and later the birthplace (and former production line) of the Ford Mustang. It currently produces Ford F150 trucks. At one time the plant employed 100,000 people and produced finished vehicles from iron ore and sand.

Dearborn geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 63.3 km² (24.5 mi²). 63.1 km² (24.4 mi²) of it is land and 0.2 km² (0.1 mi²) of it is water. The total area is 0.37% water. River Rouge runs through the city with a artifical waterfall/low head dam on the Henry Ford estate to power his powerhouse. The Upper, Middle and Lower Branches of the river come together in Dearborn. The river is widened and channeled near the Rouge Plant to allow freighter access.

Dearborn history

The Dearborn area was first settled by Europeans in 1786. The village of Dearborn was established in 1836, and its origins as a city trace back to a January 1929 consolidation vote which established its present-day borders by merging Dearborn and neighboring Springwells which feared being absorbed into Detroit. The area between the two towns was, and still remains in part undeveloped. This open land came under the control of Henry Ford who built his estate and world headquarters on it. Later developments in this corridor were the Ford airport, (later converted to the Ford test track), other Ford administrative and development facilities, The Henry Ford village and museum, the Henry Ford Centennial Library and the Dearborn Civic Center. Some of the land remains open as of 2004 and is planted, often in Henry Ford's favorite soybeans, presumably for property tax reduction purposes. The crops are never harvested.
