Dearborn Heights: City of the Week Factoids
Congratulations to Dearborn Heights: City of the Week with WCSX! According to downtowndearborn.com, the United States relocated the “Detroit Arsenal” to an area outside of Detroit that became known as Dearbornville. It was named after Revolutionary War hero General Henry Dearborn.
The real growth in Dearborn began when the Ford Motor Company built the new Fordson (later River Rouge) Assembly Plant.
In 1929 a vote was approved to merge the cities of Fordson and Dearborn.
As of the 2010 census the population of Dearborn Heights is 57,774 people.
