History[edit]

The city was named for Henry Dearborn, Revolutionary War general and Secretary of War,[6][7] and was incorporated in 1882.[8]

From 1913 to 1933 Dearborn was one of the stops along the Kansas City, Clay County and St. Joseph Railway (KCCC&SJ), an interurban light rail line connecting Kansas City and St. Joseph. Portions of the right-of-way and roadbed are still visible from Dearborn north to St. Joseph.[9]

In November, 2012 one of two winning tickets for a record-breaking $587.5 million Powerball jackpot was purchased at the Trex Mart gas station in Dearborn.[10]

In 2015, several residents in the town, including some very prominent figures, ostracized a teenage sexual abuse victim out of loyalty to her molester, who pleaded guilty to the offenses.[11]
