Grosse Ile

If your home is in Grosse Ile Michigan, you know that it is the biggest island on the Detroit River. What a glorious place to live, surrounded by water and scenes from nature. Here are some interesting tidbits about your city you may or may not have heard about:

  1. The name Grosse Ile means “Fat Island” in English.
  2. Since the late 17th century, the flags of England, France and the United States have flown over the island.
  3. There are two bridges that take you to the island – the green Wayne County Bridge (known by locals as the “Free Bridge) and the Grosse Ile Toll Bridge.
  4. The Grosse Ile Lighthouse, built in 1894, is the only lighthouse left on the island.
  5. The city has been home to the inventor of the first automobile sunroof (Heinz Prechter) as well as Ransom E. Olds, founder of Oldsmobile.

Homeowners in your town are meticulous about maintaining their properties, yards and businesses.
