History

Warren was incorporated as a city in 1957 and consists of what was previously Warren Township, less the city of Center Line. Between 1950 and 1960, Warren's population soared from 42,653 to 89,426. This population explosion was fueled in part by white flight from its southern neighbor of Detroit in that decade. This can be easily seen as one travels north on Van Dyke Road (M-53). When you start off at 8 Mile Road, the southern city limit, you can see many houses from the 1920s and 1930s behind the businesses lining Van Dyke. As you travel farther north the houses become newer, and by the time you reach 12 Mile Road the houses are of the 1960s era. This population explosion continued into the next decade when the city's population doubled again. As the community has matured, its population has begun to gradually decline. Center Line is a city in Macomb County in the U.S. state of Michigan. ...

There are a number of distinguishing characteristics about Warren which render it unique:

  • Warren was one of the fastest-growing areas in the country between 1940 and 1970. It had a habit of doubling its population every 10 years: In 1940 the official population of Warren Township was 22,146; in 1950, it was 42,653; in 1960, after Warren Township had become the City of Warren, it was up to 89,240; by 1970 it had grown to 179,274.
  • Since 1970, Warren has been consistently one of the faster declining cities in population in the country. The population dropped by 10% during each of the next two decades (1980: 161,060; 1990: 144,864), and continued its downward trend by shedding another 4.6% of its population by 2000.
  • Warren’s population is currently one of the oldest among large cities in the U.S. 17.3% of Warren's population was 65 or older at the last census, tied for fifth with Hollywood, FL among cities with 100,000+ population, and indeed the highest ranking city outside of Florida or Hawaii.[1]
  • Warren is ranked 1st in the nation for resident longevity. Residents of Warren on average have lived in that community 35.5 years, compared to the national average of 8 years for communities of 100,000+ population.
  • Warren had the distinction of being the "whitest" large city as well. In 1970, whites made up 99.5% of its total population of 179,274; only 838 non-whites lived within the city limits. (Fellow Detroit suburb Livonia now holds the distinction of being America's "whitest city" as of the 2000 Census.) Racial integration has come slowly to Warren: the white proportion has dropped only gradually in the past few decades, to 98.2% in 1980, 97.3% in 1990, and 91.3% in 2000. Warren remains a population center for people of Polish, Italian, Ukrainian, Scots-Irish, and Chaldean descent.
