Inkster is a city in Wayne County, Michigan. At the 2010 census, the city population was 25,369. It is one of the few Metro Detroit suburbs whose population is majority African American.
The area was originally inhabited by Native Americans, but was settled by non-indigenous people in 1825. A post office named “Moulin Rouge” was established there in December 1857. Robert Inkster, a Scotsman born March 27, 1828, in Lerwick, Shetland, operated a steam sawmill on present-day Inkster Road near Michigan Avenue in the early 1860s.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 6.25 square miles. It is all land.
In the 1920s and 1930s, African-Americans working in Henry Ford’s factories settled in Inkster because they didn’t want to commute from Detroit and they weren’t allowed to live in Dearborn.
