The city of Saginaw has roots that begin in Michigan. Founder Jarvis Green was Michigan born and wanted to name his land in remembrance of his home state. He worked on Saginaw street in the city of Pontiac and hence the origin of the city's name. The council approved the name Saginaw in 1883 and with the arrival of the railroad, Saginaw experienced substantial growth. The historical influences of Saginaw are still alive, as they boast the ownership of the largest grain storage facility in the world. This and more makes Saginaw 'The city on the right track'.
