Westland is a bustling Wayne County community located south of Livonia and east of Canton. As it finds itself in proximity of many great Metro Detroit cities, Westland residents can still find the neighborly and friendly feel within their city. Westland is a little over 20 square miles in size and has a population of over 84,000 residents. Westland is located in an ideal spot in southeast Michigan especially for the commuter; the city is about 30 minutes from the heart of downtown Detroit and Ann Arbor, and less than 20 minutes from the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
Decades before settlers began living in the area of modern day Westland, this location was frequently visited by settlers and explorers heading westbound who wanted to trade with the local Potawatomi and Algonquian Native American tribes. People finally started settling in 1824 in what was considered Bucklin County which encompassed many of the cities in the area. From here, the transitions and identities of the territory changed as Bucklin County split, then changed names, then became a series of townships until cities like Livonia officially split away entirely. After 1835 and continuing to the end of 19th century, other cities such as Wayne, Inkster and Garden City followed the precedent set by Livonia and split away as well.
Westland, like nearby Canton, had its original name based on a Chinese city. Nankin, after the city of Nanking in China, was what this city was called until 1966 when Westland was finally adopted as the officially incorporated city name. Why Westland? It’s not because of its location in the western suburbs but rather because of the Westland Shopping Mall.
