Overview

Introduction to Warren, Michigan

The Michigan city of Warren is located in Macomb County, about 15 miles north of Detroit. One of the largest suburbs in the Detroit metropolitan area, Warren is often referred to as the City of Progress. Other surrounding cities include Sterling Heights (to the north), Hazel Park (to the west), and Roseville (to the east). Interstate I-696 and Michigan State Highway 53 service the city, which is also close to Interstate I-75.

First settled in 1835, the area which now comprises Warren was principally farming territory throughout much of its history. In 1909 a village emerged and this village would eventually become incorporated as the city of Warren in 1957. Between 1940 and 1970, the city experienced a very significant era of large population growth although since that time this trend has reversed itself. Warren today is home to a wide variety of businesses and serves as the headquarters of Big Boy Restaurants International.
