District 6 is rich and diverse, with a history filled with untold stories. Our neighborhoods embody the spirit of Detroit.

WE ARE MEXICANTOWN

In the early 1920s, the first Mexican families began to settle in the residential sections around downtown Detroit. They were drawn to Detroit because of the many job opportunities available within its rapidly growing industrial base. With time, they moved farther southwest into the area now known as Mexicantown. Today, the common perception of Mexicantown’s boundaries are Michigan Avenue, West Fort Street, Livernois Avenue and  Rosa Parks Boulevard, with Clark Park and the Ambassador Bridge at the heart of the community.
