Dearborn Business; February 2, 2012

Case Background and Claims:2012_02_11_DOublebolive_awning_

Dearborn began to be settled in the early 1780’s by the French. The first local roads were created along established Indian trails. Dearborn’s main thoroughfare, Michigan Avenue, was laid out along the Sauk-Fox Trail, one of the principal Indian trails. It was a main passage of travel in pioneer times. Settlers began arriving in large numbers after 1825, coming mostly from northeastern United States and Europe.

Dearborn was a regular stagecoach stop along the Chicago Road (today’s Michigan Avenue), but travel slackened after the railroad came through in 1837. The heart of old Dearborn was along the old Chicago Road near the arsenal, between the Rouge River and the railroad track.

It seems the building was built around 1919. There have been many businesses before the Double Olive Bar came into its current business. There are rumors that in this old part of town there are underground tunnels connecting the businesses but no proof was found of this.
