and the Changing Industrial Landscape

Wyoming Avenue has a vivid industrial history.
Brick-making flourished in the 1800s as companies like Clippert, Haggerty and Mercier took advantage of the area's rich clay deposits. Automakers competing with Ford later came to this east side of Dearborn. Graham-Paige Motor Car Company operated a plant at Warren and Wyoming avenues from the late 1920s through World War II. After the war, Chrysler purchased Graham-Paige and built DeSotos at the Dearborn Warren Avenue Plant until 1958.

You Auto Know
During World War II, Chrysler leased the Warren Avenue plant from Graham-Paige to make bomber aircraft fuselages.
