The influence of the automotive industry persists even today with factories, facilities, historic homesteads and even museums. So, what does Dearborn look like today? On this tour, you will learn how the past and present of this city are interwoven, meet the people leading some exciting new projects and see the innovations and adaptations of this important city in the Metro Detroit region.
