Located in the state of Michigan and a city in Wayne County, Westland is situated west of Detroit’s downtown. The first inhabitants of the area where the present-day Westland stands are multiple Native American tribes, although none of these tribes permanently settle in the area, they would often meet there to discuss matters. The site was picked by the settlers due to its mediocre size that is good as a trading post, which is more for the rest of the actual trade that will be on its way on the trade routes. Many people pass by but no one ever stayed, thus, the area remained undeveloped in the 19th century and was not able to pick up its pace until 1930 to 1980. Wetland was originally named Nankin Township long before it came to be known today. It came from the Nankin Mills that can be found within its borders.
