Product Overview

Mexican immigrants began to settle in Detroit at the beginning
of the 20th century. They were attracted by the jobs available
in the automobile industry and the rest of the rapidly expanding
industrial base. Like other immigrant ethnic groups, Mexicans came
to Detroit intent on providing a better life, and future, for their
families. They opened businesses like specialty grocery and retail
stores, barbershops, and restaurants. They bought homes, educated
their children, served in all branches of the military, and became
model Americans. What they brought to Detroit were family values,
faith, and a strong work ethic. Detroit''s Mexicantown offers a glimpse
into when and where the community started.
