1810 Map of the West Dearborn Area


This early 1810 military map depicts the military reservation created a few years earlier in the area that is now West Dearborn. In 1832, the reservation was selected as a location to construct the Detroit Arsenal military base. The village of Dearbornville was originally established in 1833 on lands sold from the military reservation.
