Overview of Flint
The birthplace of General Motors and the epicenter of the American auto industry for many years, Flint is a metropolis located on the eastern side of Michigan that has retained much of this hard-working spirit over the years. The 102,231 citizens, according to the 2010 Census, that call the city home have a storied history in manufacturing, and the redevelopment efforts by the local government have come a long way in restoring much of the region's pride.
People looking for Flint apartments for rent will have many neighborhoods to choose from, and the downtown area provides young couples with a chance to be located near the University of Michigan Flint campus. Still dominated by auto culture, the hardworking city is the heart of Genesee County and is a testament to the spirit of resilient Americans.
Living in Flint, MI
The city was founded by Jacob Smith, who worked as a fur trader, in 1819, and Flint quickly became a trading outpost in the region. After the early settlement grew, carried by emerging lumber, trading and trapping industries, it was incorporated in 1855 and its population began to swell as the 20th century approached.
The advent of the automotive industry in America helped the city grow at a tremendous rate, and the relocation of General Motors to Flint brought many manufacturing and production jobs to the area. The metropolis got much of its hardworking spirit during this period, especially after the famous strike that lead to the formation of the United Auto Workers organization.
World War II called on much of America to support the cause, and the industrial prowess of the city allowed it to help the effort by supplying the troops with machinery and tanks. The GM factory remained central to the development of the area for most of the 20th century, and the impact that it had on region can still be seen by people who are looking for Flint rentals.
Though the city has lost much of its production capacity following the closure of the GM plant, the culture that surrounded the auto industry can still be seen at several historical centers and museums scattered around the town.
