A Brief History of Eastpointe MI
Back in 1830s, the area now known as Eastpointe MI was initially settled by the Irish, soon followed by the German. It was originally called Orange Township, but was shortly renamed to Erin Township. After almost a hundred years of being a township, the village of Halfway was formed. 5 years after the village’s esablishment, Eastpointe MI had grown large enough to earn the status of a city.
In 1929, the city of East Detroit was incorporated. However, the city struggled for years with a lack of identity, often being confused for its larger neighbor, Detroit. By a majority vote on a referendum in 1992, the city took the name it currently holds: Eastpointe. The -pointe suffix is meant to be an association with the local Groose Pointes community.
The city is one of the rare communities that went through three different governmental forms: township, village and city. Now, the area is a peaceful community that is mostly composed of red brick houses, which give a unique feel.
