Overview of Inkster

The city of Inkster is located in southeastern Michigan, approximately three miles southwest of Dearborn Heights and roughly 13 miles west of Detroit. The city is situated in Wayne County and considered to be part of the Detroit metropolitan area. Inkster apartments for rent are easy to find across the 6.25 square miles of land and are excellent ways to join the more than 25,000 people who make up the community.

Residents particularly enjoy this city's prime location along Michigan Avenue, with easy access to nearby Interstates 94 and 275, Southfield Freeway, and Telegraph Road. Sitting parallel to Michigan Avenue are the Conrail Railroad Lines, and the Detroit Wayne County Metropolitan Airport is only six miles south of the city.

Living in Inkster, MI

The area where Inkster is today was first settled by Europeans in 1825 and given the name of Moulin Rouge in 1857. The city was renamed Inkster in the early 1860s after Robert Inkster, who was a native of the Shetland Islands and managed a sawmill at the time. According to the city of Inkster website, the name Inkster is thought to have originated from a Norse name, "Ingasetter," which is a combination of a person's name and terms that mean "summer pasture."

Inkster was originally incorporated as a village in 1926, but was reincorporated in 1964 as a city. The city website revealed that Inkster is known primarily as a residential community, with some light industrial and commercial development.
