Founded during the War of 1812, Trenton has a rich history in the limestone and steamboat industries. Trenton's name comes from a type of limestone historically mined from a local quarry, and materials from this quarry were used in the construction of Detroit. Trenton's first dock was built in 1834, making Trenton a hub for steamboat traffic over the next fifty years.
