Cars Driving Growth in Hamtramck

The small village of Hamtramck grew from 3,500 people into a city of 56,000 people by 1930 with the Dodge Main assembly plant opening in 1914. A center for auto dealerships this stretch of road became known as "Automobile Row" because of the dozen auto dealerships and other auto businesses along the street.
