Washtenaw County is directly west of Detroit, and is situated on the old 'Chicago Road' which today is US Highway 12.
One of the first things that took place after the town of Ann Arbor was formed was to start the University of Michigan, which is today one of the largest in the United States. It contains a significant collection of historical documents in its library given the nearly 200 years it has been in existence, having been formed in the 1820s.
The original parent county was Wayne County.
