Marine City, Michigan, USA

Beginning in the 17th century, French trappers and missionaries entered the territory, followed by settlers in the colonial period on both sides of the Detroit and St. Clair rivers. Farmers developed long, narrow plots that were laid out in the typical rectangular shape of colonial French, with the narrow end along the riverfront. These are known as "Ribbon Farms." Marine City is a border city just a short ride across the St. Clair river from Ontario, Canada.
