THE CITY OF

ANN ARBOR

Ann Arbor is located in Washtenaw County. The 2010 census recorded its population as 113,934. It is the principal city of the Ann Arbor Metropolitan Statistical Area, which encompasses all of Washtenaw County. 

Detailed introduction

Ann Arbor was founded in 1824, named after wives of the village’s founders (both named Ann!) and the stands of bur oak trees. In 1837, the University of Michigan moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor, and the city grew at a rapid rate in the early to the mid-20th century. During the 1960s and 1970s, the city gained a reputation as a center for left-wing politics. Ann Arbor became a focal point for political activism, such as opposition to the Vietnam War and support for the legalization of cannabis.

Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan. The university significantly shapes Ann Arbor’s economy as it employs about 30,000 workers, including about 12,000 in the medical center. The city’s economy is also centered on high technology with several companies drawn to the area by the university’s research and development infrastructure.
