Map: Detroit Annexation 1891


From the Detroit Historical Society:

“This 1891 map shows us how the boundaries of Detroit expanded through Acts of Legislature starting in 1806. It even notes when an enlargement was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.”

You can see the evolution of land surveying and street grid developments too!
