History[edit]

Where is the historic "Weir Lane"? I'm reading up on the history of the old township (which included all of the Pointes, Harper Woods, and parts of present-day Detroit), and I noticed that the Village of Grosse Pointe was either incorporated or organized from Fisher to Weir. My readings seem to imply Weir would be the old western border before it was extended to Cadieux (and still yet many years before incorporation as a city). If this is the case, there was never a time when the village incorporated any land from what is the Farms. --Criticalthinker (talk) 04:06, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, that was quick. I just did a bit more research, and it mentions that the village extended "up" to around Provencal Road. So, Weir must have been east of Fisher not west. So, I guess the village eventually came to span the area from around Provencal Road to Cadieux, and that the Farms eventually incorporated the eastern section of the village. --Criticalthinker (talk) 04:25, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
