Amtrak Midwest Train #350, The Wolverine, is within at few blocks of the station in Dearborn Michigan as it splits the residences at Mason Street. In 2020 Dearborn had a population of almost 110,000 inhabitants. The area has long and interesting history, the French claimed it in 1603. In July 1701, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac landed in Detroit, just a few mile away. The British took control back, and after the Treaty of Paris, ceded the area to the United States. Henry Ford was born here. The River Rouge factory is the largest in the Ford empire. Not far away is Greenfield Village and The Henry Ford, a largest and stunning indoor and outdoor museum complex.
