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

The Red Run provided the pathway that the Moravian Trail (a 23 1/2 mile wagon road built in 1785 by the Moravian missionaries and local indians) followed to reach the interior to settle and homestead.

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