It was founded in 1824 by two land surveyors, and was named "Annarbour," named in honor of the men's wives, both of whom were named Ann. After the University of Michigan moved here from Detroit in 1837, the town grew in size and prominence.
Today, Ann Arbor is known for its pictaresque scenery, downtown area, riverfront, autumn colors, large amount of trees within the city, historic theater, and university.
