Just north of the downtown area, Hamtramck, Michigan is a suburb of Detroit. Hamtramck is named after French-Canadian soldier Jean Francois Hamtramck who fought for the Americans during the American Revolution. Hamtramck was born in Montreal, Canada in 1756 and at the age of 20 joined the fledgling Continental Army at the outbreak of the revolution. He was decorated for valor during the war and later sent to Michigan to fight the British who still lingered in the Great Lakes Region. At the American victory over a coalition of British and Native American forces at the Battle of Fallen Timbers near present day Toledo he was again cited for bravery by General Anthony Wayne. He was subsequently appointed as the commandant of Detroit in 1796 where he served until his death in 1803. He is buried in Veterans Memorial Park in his namesake city. In the 1800’s the area was first settled by immigrant German farmers. With the invention of the automobile and the establishment of the assembly line for mass production Hamtramck became a center for manufacturing with the Dodge Brothers plant opening in 1910. Eastern Europeans, especially Polish immigrants, flooded into Detroit to work in the factories and many became residents of Hamtramck. In fact, part of Detroit’s Poletown extends into Hamtramck. Today, about 14 percent of the city’s population is Polish. In recent years, immigrants from Muslim countries, especially Yemen, have made their homes in Hamtramck. In 2015, the city voted for a Muslim majority on the City Council, the first in America to do so. With more than 40 percent of its residents born outside the United States, Hamtramck is the most internationally diverse city in Michigan.
It is certain that a Hamtramck tutor will keep you caught up on your most demanding academic subjects so you can take time away from the books to enjoy the many things to do in the greater Detroit area. During the first week in March Hamtramck hosts its annual Music Festival with literally hundreds of bands playing different venues throughout the area. The festival’s website boasts that “through a pro-active citizenry, music, and culture, the HMF is determined to celebrate and enrich our community in Hamtramck and the surrounding Metropolitan Detroit area.” More than 4,000 music lovers attended the festival in 2017.
In 2006 a collection of local artists established Hatch: A Hamtramck Art Collective which has morphed into a café and gallery. The gallery has hosted a variety of exhibitions in mediums such as painting, sculpture, acrylic, tapestry and even body art. Hatch is home to Hamtramck Disneyland, a collection of folk art by Dmytro Szylak who constantly updated his array of artwork for thirty years until his death in 2015. Hatch also holds several activities for artists and the public including rummage sales, graphic novel discussion groups, field trips and lectures.
