Dearborn

Over a century ago Henry Ford’s Model T rolled off the assembly line in Detroit. Today Ford World Headquarters calls Dearborn, Michigan home. The city is a thriving Metro Detroit suburb and the site of some of the leading educational and cultural attractions in the state.

Aside from Ford Motor Company, Oakwood Health Care system and Visteon are the other major employers in town.

Dearborn is home to Michigan’s leading entertainment attraction and the nation’s largest indoor/outdoor American history museum, the Henry Ford, which includes The Ford Rouge Tour, the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.

Greenfield Village is a 90-acre indoor/outdoor complex featuring a look into America’s past. Attractions here include the Wright Brothers’ home, Thomas Edison’s laboratory and the opportunity to take a spin in a Model T.

The Henry Ford, featuring the largest collection of its kind, includes President John F. Kennedy’s limousine, the bus where Rosa Parks made history, and the chair where President Lincoln sat that fateful day in the Ford’s Theater.

The Ford Rouge Tour, the only one like it of its kind, offers visitors a chance to walk along the assembly line, as well as multi-sensory theater experience with a 360-degree look at automobiles are made.

Dearborn’s population is very ethnically diverse. Residents enjoy cuisine from around the globe, right in their own neighborhoods thanks to places like: Tuhama’s, Shaheya, Antonio’s Roman Village, La Penguina Deli, and Bangkok 96 Restaurant (which catered for Clint Eastwood on the Gran Torino set during filming here in Metro Detroit).

The Dearborn school district is made up of 19,000 students and 32 schools, several of which are tucked away in well-established, tree-lined neighborhoods.

Students of all ages can attend classes on painting, orchestra, dance, drawing, acting and various other activities at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. This impressive facility also features a climbing wall, pool, and fitness center and art gallery.

Dearborn is also home to the Arab American National Museum which chronicles the history of Arab Americans in the United States.

Each August Dearborn hosts its “Homecoming” event complete with fireworks, carnival games, live music, and a car cruise. Other family-friendly events take place each year including those that happen at the lively Dearborn Farmer’s and Artisan Market.

The market is open weekly and if you’re lucky, you’ll be there when Kettle Corn of Michigan is dishing out their “Better than Chicago” flavor corn (a mixture of caramel and cheese that’s all Michigan!). Other market regulars include Capri Italian Bakery, Binkey’s Hot Dog and Sausage and Cellar Door Soap Company.

Camp Dearborn is a 626 acre family-orientated recreational facility, owned and operated by the City of Dearborn since 1948.


It offers a wide range of amenities for outdoor activity; a half-mile swimming beach, acres of shaded picnic sites, fishing, paddle boat rentals, hayrides, camping, hiking trails, and Mystic Creek Golf Club.

The city is a regional center for health care services, employment, and transportation. Dearborn is convenient to two airports: Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) in nearby Romulus, as well as the city of Detroit City Airport (DET). It is also on the main artery of the SMART bus public transit system as well as the Amtrak line.

The main branches of the Rouge River come together in Dearborn. The river even has an artificial waterfall used to power the Henry Ford Estate.
