Westland, Michigan Community Guide...

Westland's history goes back a very long way! Three Algonquin tribes - Potawatomi, Ojibwa, and Ottawa - met each year on the middle fork of the Rouge River at the site of Nankin Mills to establish hunting territories. In 1824, territorial Governor William Cass created Bucklin Township, which covered the cities now known as Westland, Livonia, Wayne and Garden City. Bucklin Township was later divided into Nankin and Livonia Townships. In 1966, shortly after the neighboring city of Wayne was incorporated, what was left of Nankin Township became the city of Westland.

Centrally located in western Wayne County, Michigan's tenth largest city has easy access to a number of the metro area's major highways, downtown Detroit, and the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

The City of Westland has developed a reputation as a city with affordable housing. About two-thirds of the residences are single-family homes and one-third are multiple unit complexes. New construction, mostly of moderate to higher priced homes (up to $300,000), makes it possible for current residents to remain in the community, trading up as their standard of living increases. Much of this new construction has taken place in the northwest corner of the city.

The availability of shopping is a major advantage. Westland Center, one of the nation's four original malls built in the 1960's, has become the city's major shopping magnet. The Center itself houses more than 130 stores including Macy's, J. C. Penney, Sears and Kohls plus many other specialty stores. Westland Center is also the anchor for many nearby smaller strip centers. The shopping opportunities in Westland draw customers from a 20+ mile radius.

Like most well established communities, Westland has an excellent infrastructure and an abundance of city services and activities. Many neighborhoods have well-maintained parks. The city's total park system comprises more than 1,000 acres, including the Middle Rouge Parkway which cuts through the community and contains Newburgh Lake and a portion of the 17-1/2 mile scenic Edward Hines Drive.

The William Holliday Forest and Wildlife Preserve, Wayne County's only wildlife reserve, covers over 500 acres of the city. Many activities and classes for residents of all ages are available year-round through the city's Parks and Recreation Department.

Westland Michigan Housing Market:

Westland, Michigan offers a wide variety of homes to choose from. Prospective home buyers will find houses built in many different eras and in many different styles including bungalows, colonials, ranches and more. Some homes are situated on large park-like lots for those that want a little room to stretch out in!

Westland also offers many condominiums to choose from and in many different price ranges. Some condo complexes are large and some are quite small. Again, many options for buyers to select from in regards to purchasing a residence.
