History

Incorporated as a city in 1867, the site where Wyandotte sits today in the 18th century was a village for the Native American tribe known as the Wyandot or Wendat, part of the Huron nation. It was from here in 1763 that Chief Pontiac plotted his attack on Detroit. The center of the village was near modern-day Eureka Avenue and Oak Street. However, this description of location is questionable in that modern-day Eureka and Oak run parallel to each other. It is more probable that the location may have been BETWEEN modern-day Eureka and Oak along the main road near the Detroit River which is Biddle Avenue (see detailed reference to Biddle Avenue below).
