Business Pioneers on Morley Ave

This Morley Avenue neighborhood has a special history. In the early 1800s, the U.S. government purchased this land near the Rouge River for a frontier military reserve and arsenal. When the arsenal closed in 1875, the land was sold and subdivided for development. Many of Dearborn's early business entrepreneurs and prominent personalities built homes in the neighborhood in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Many of their homes still stand in the Morley Avenue Residential Area.
