Welcome to Ann Arbor

The city of Ann Arbor was founded in 1824 by John Allen and Elisha Walker Rumsey.  The two co-founders decided to name it after their wives, who were both named Ann.  Ann Arbor was incorporated as a village in 1833, and was later offered as the capital of the state of Michigan. However, the city of Lansing would go on to be named the state capital in 1837, while Ann Arbor was given the official site for the University of Michigan after it was moved from Detroit. 

The University of Michigan is recognized as one of the top research universities in the country.  The university itself offers a tremendous boost to Ann Arbor’s overall economy, employing approximately thirty thousand workers.  The city’s economy is also very invested in high quality technology, drawing several firms to the area because of the universities research and development money. 

With the feeling of a small town coupled with a big city atmosphere, Ann Arbor is the perfect place to do anything from raise a family, attend college, or even retire.  It is a city that offers many opportunities to allow your dreams to become reality.
