Station: North Detroit, MI

The North Detroit area was settled about 1868 as Dalton Corners. When the Detroit & Bay City railroad (later MC/NYC/PC/Conrail) came through here, they established a station called Norris. It was renamed North Detroit about 1891. The town was generally described as between Six and Seven Mile Roads, and Mound Road and Van Dyke Avenue. It was absorbed by the City of Detroit. [MPN]

The Michigan Central had a freight house and team track at North Detroit, on their Bay City branch at Nevada Avenue. [MCTC-1950]
