History of Saginaw, Michigan
Located in central Michigan, Saginaw had a thriving lumber industry that attracted settlers from all over the area. The lumber boom peaked in the 1870s and was later replaced by other industries. Although Detroit was the heart of the automobile industry, Saginaw was also a major contributor to both the manufacturing and automobile industries. During WWII Saginaw continued to be dominated by industry and manufacturing. Modern-day Saginaw formed in the 1880s when two neighboring cities, Saginaw City and East Saginaw, combined.
