Only 10 miles from French Fort Detroit (1701), it took 100 years before settlers reached Warren. The Red Run, a branch of the Clinton River was the means that the fur traders and early pioneers followed by canoe.

The Red Run provided the pathway that the Moravian Trail followed to reach the interior to settle and homestead. This 231/2 mile wagon road built in 1785 by the Moravian missionaries and local Indians.

At the time, this territory was nothing but a marsh and the Red Run and other similar waterways provided the drain outlets to dry the land and open the area for forestry and farming.
