Electric streetcars and interurbans appeared in Washtenaw County in the 1890s. Evolved from horse-drawn streetcars, electric cars were ideal for public transportation. They were cheap, fast, and went to plenty of places. The system developed around Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, branching out to Detroit to the east and Jackson to the west. Bigger and better equipment was added, and larger companies took over the small ones. In western Washtenaw County, two interurban railways engaged in a struggle for survival. Occasionally the interurbans crashed into buildings or one another, with disastrous results. Electric Trolleys of Washtenaw County explains how electric mass transportation flourished starting in the 1890s, why it bloomed, and why it suddenly became extinct after only a few decades.

Shortly after its founding in 1824, Riley Ingersoll and George Wilcox built cabins in the wilderness that would become Dundee. Sybrant Van Nest platted the village along the north shore of the River Raisin and offered it for sale in 1835. His broadside advertised "two first rate Sawmills and one small Gristmill in the village, and a large and elegant Tavern House." Eventually so many trails and roads crisscrossed in Dundee that the little farming community was dubbed "The Hub of the Highways." During the Great Depression, Henry Ford saved the decrepit Old Mill by turning it into a Village Industry. Michigan's only triangular downtown, with its 1870s brick Italianate buildings, and the Old Mill were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
