Lenawee County was named for a Shawnee word for "Indian". The first railroad rail west of New York was the 33 mile long Erie and Kalamazoo Railroad. It reached to Adrian in 1836 and the train cars were horse drawn. In 1840 a second railroad came to Lenawee call the Michigan Southern. These two railroads helped to increase the county's growth. A bi-racial coeducation teacher's college was founded named The Raisin Institute. In 1859 Adrian College was opened. In the 1800's there was production of railroad cars, wire fencing and automobiles. One of many attractions to this county is the Michigan International Speedway.
