Kellogg Park, the hub of the city's business district, reminds many visitors of a New England common. Once called Plymouth Green, its wide expanse of grass, variety of shade trees, and bubbling fountain make it an attractive focal point for the many civic, social and commercial activities that take place in the community.  The homes around the downtown have an average higher per square foot cost.  There are some exclusive gated communities in the area and even some estates that range in the Million dollar plus category.  The  closeness of the expressways, to Detroit, Ann Arbor, and the airport makes it an ideal spot to relocate to Michigan

The City of Plymouth was built where three Potawatomi Indian trails converged at the Rouge River. The first settlers arrive in 1825, and named the township in honor of the first American settlement at Plymouth Rock where some of them had lived.  Attracted by the land act of 1820, which made property available at $1.25 an acre, the first settlers arrived here in 1824. The first home was built in what is now the city in 1825. The first purchaser, Alanson Aldrich did not settle on his new property, nor did the second purchaser, Abraham Spears. The third person to purchase property within Plymouth Township city limits, was Erastus Hussey. He did settle on his land, however, not until the year 1826. 

The first actual people to settle in Plymouth Township, were Allen and William Tibbets. They had bought 800 acres of land and settled on them, in the latter part of 1824. Other soon joined, but it wasn't until the Spring of 1825, that a sufficient number of settlers formed a real community.  

It was George Starkweather, the first child born to settlers in present Plymouth Township, who later in 1871 recognized the importance of a railroad to a community and decided that the North Village of Plymouth would become the new center of town. He built a new store on the corner of Liberty and Starkweather and opened a road through his property for other new stores to locate. This area is presently known as "Old Village" or "Lowertown."

Plymouth Township was organized in 1827, and the village incorporated in 1867.

From the turn of the century until 1958 Plymouth MI was the air rifle capital of the world.  More bb guns were manufactured here than anywhere else during those years.
