The history of Detroit
Detroit is the biggest city in the state of Michigan. The city was founded back in 1701, with it becoming an important hub in the 19th century, as part of the Great Lakes. It grew rapidly in the 20th century, thanks to the Automotive boom, and became the fourth largest city in the USA. In the late 20th century, the city was affected considerably due to the financial crisis and became the largest city in the USA to file for bankruptcy. It was voted as the ‘City of Design’ in 2015, by the UNESCO — the first city in the US to have this honor.
