Ann Arbor history: Go to this history page for Ann Arbor.

In March of 1824, Ann Arbor was named the county seat for Washtenaw County. It wasn't until May of 1824 that a name was officially chosen for the community. The wives of the two founders were Ann and Mary Ann. It is said the settlement was named for them, but there are differing stories about the naming of Ann Arbor. Some have said that the two women spent hours on the creek bank doing handwork and spent many afternoons enlarging and beautifying the wild grape arbor. Others say that Allen thought of naming the town Annapolis after his wife or maybe Allenville, but finally settled on Arbor (he spelled it Arbour) because the thick vegetation was like an arbor. The name was written as Annarbour initially and later separated and shortened. From 1824 when the name was recorded , the area has continued to grow and develop.
The settling of Ann Arbor: February 12, 1824 by a man from Virginia named John Allen and fellow pioneer, Elisha Rumsey.
