Wyandotte, Michigan

Wyandotte, a city in Wayne County, occupies seven square miles in southeastern Michigan. Home to about 28,000 citizens, this waterfront community is situated ten miles south of Detroit along the Detroit River. Wyandotte is part of the collection of communities known as Downriver. Incorporated as a city in 1867, the site where Wyandotte sits today was, in the 1700s, a village for the Native American tribe known as the Wyandot, a part of the Huron Nation.

December 12, 1854 marks the date of the founding of the village of Wyandotte, which coincides with the founding of Wyandotte’s first industry, the Eureka Iron Works. In 1865, the Eureka Iron Works was the first mill in the United States to produce steel using the Bessemer Process. By the end of the 19th century, Wyandotte was a major hub in the chemical production industry. Notable companies during this time were Michigan Alkali Company and the J.B. Ford Company. In 1969, the chemical giant B.A.S.F. purchased the Michigan Alkali Company and the J.B. Ford Company (which were merged in the 1930s). B.A.S.F. continues operations in Wyandotte to this day. Other prominent industries in the late 19th century and early 20th century were shipbuilding and toy manufacturing. Between 1920 and 1950, the Wyandotte Toys company was the nation's largest manufacturer of toy guns and pistols, producing a wide variety of pop guns, clicker pistols, dart guns, cap guns as well as a variety of plastic pistols.

Wyandotte, Michigan has a long history of shipbuilding and manufacturing activity, which places it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure.
