Known as Beebe's Corners in the early 1800s, the city of Warren has grown to become the third-largest city in Michigan,
surrounding Center Line-the city within the city. Warren's history has something for everyone. A pioneer burial ground
was discovered on school property in the 1970s, and an old Norway spruce still points the way for a vanished tribe.
In the 1920s, the Warren cooperative supplied goods to a growing community, and the first African American cemetery
in the state was established as well. Warren's General Motors Tech Center was dubbed "the Versailles of Industry" in
the mid-20th century; in addition to a worldwide radio broadcast, a crowd of 5,000 attended the dedication ceremony,
including Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower. The Chrysler tank arsenal helped to end World War II. World-renowned architects
Eero Saarinen and Albert Kahn designed commercial and residential structures in Warren and Center Line. Places of worship
represent all faiths, and a top-notch school system serves Warren-testaments to the culture of this community.
the book is available through the Warren Historical & Genealogical Society for $20.00.
