  • History

    After serving in the War of 1812, Abram Caleb Truax was granted a large area of land along the Detroit River from the U.S. Government in 1816, where he developed the area currently known as downtown Trenton by building a church and a sawmill. The city was originally called Truaxton in 1834. Its name changed to Trenton in 1847 after a type of limestone was mined in a local quarry started by Soloman Sibley. Sibley used the mineral to produce baking soda for his family's company, Arm & Hammer. Prior to that, the city was a hub for steamboat traffic and overnight guests traveling from Monroe to Detroit.

    A number of annual events help define life in the city, including the Trenton Summer Festival street art fair, while the Trenton Museum remains a popular destination for those eager to learn more about the area's long and unique history.

If you commute via public transportation, a one-way ride on the DDOT costs $1.25, or $2 if you choose to travel on the SMART ride.
