Dearborn Relocation

If you have been hired by Ford Motor Company or another company in Southeastern Michigan then a Dearborn relocation may be for you.  Dearborn was Henry Ford's town.  Founded in 1786 and incorporated as a city in 1929, Dearborn, Michigan is the eighth largest city in the state, and the second largest city in Wayne County. First settled in the late 18th century by French farmers in a series of ribbon farms along the Rouge River and the Sauk Trail, the community grew with the establishment of the Detroit Arsenal on the Chicago Road linking Detroit and Chicago.  More than 98,000 residents call Dearborn “home” and benefit from exceptional City services. The city even owned a campground out in the Milford area called Camp Dearborn.  They also owned condos in Florida at one time.  

The industrial tax base earned from Ford Motor company helps the city's coffers.  Internationally recognized as the birthplace of Henry Ford, Dearborn is where auto and steel manufacturing, green beltways, fields of sunflowers and wildlife dwell side by side. The city is a regional center for employment, health care services, higher education, shopping and transportation along with outstanding cultural, environmental and visitor attractions.  If you would like a Dearborn relocation guide email me at
