Wayne County was established in 1796. At its founding, the County's borders stretched from the County seat in Detroit, to encompass almost all of Michigan, as well as northern Indiana, the eastern edge of Illinois [including what is now the city of Chicago], and a small wedge of Wisconsin. There had been settlers in the area since Detroit was founded by French explorers in 1701.
