Back in the early 1800’s Plymouth started to see the first signs of settlers arriving in the area. It started in 1825 and the community continued to grow into a village over the next 100 years. In 1932, Plymouth became an incorporated city. The first settlers to arrive in Plymouth settled at what is now the corner of Ann Arbor Trail and Main Street right near Kellogg Park. Throughout the 1800’s the Detroit and Howell Railroad ran through the city which helped bring visitors and commerce to the area. As residents and visitors walk through the downtown area today, they are greeted by many historic structures such as the modern-day bars and boutique stores along Main Street and the gorgeous homes leading into the downtown area.
The residents in the Plymouth area are in an amazing location in metro Detroit and many visitors flock to this area to enjoy its beautiful parks where people of all ages have access to everything from lakes and hiking hills to disc golf courses, sledding hills and playgrounds. Plymouth is located near the intersection of M-14/I-96 and I-275. This prime location ensures drivers can reach Ann Arbor via M-14 in about twenty minutes as well as make it downtown for a sporting event, concert or one of the famous 5k or 10k runs through the city in less than thirty minutes. Having such immediate access to the freeways means your car can get hit with some wear and tear over the years.
