Introduction to Inkster, Michigan
The area now referred to as Inkster was first settled by Europeans in 1825. In December 1857, a post office was established here under the name of "Moulin Rouge." Both the area and the post office were renamed Inkster in honor of Robert Inkster, who managed a steam sawmill in the region during the early 1860s. The place was initially incorporated as a village in 1926. However, in 1964, the village was reincorporated as a city.
