Adrian is a city in the state of Michigan and the county seat of Lenawee County. Adrian is approximately 30 miles southwest of Ann Arbor, 30 miles southeast of Jackson, and 30 miles northwest of Toledo, Ohio . A portion of the city is on the border between Adrian Township and Madison Charter Township, although the city is politically independent of both. The city's urban area extends beyond the city limits into both of those townships as well as into nearby Raisin Township and Palmyra Township. Adrian was founded on June eighteenth, 1826 by Addison Comstock and was originally named Logan. Then in 1828 Addison's wife renamed the village to Adrian after the Roman Emperor Hadrian. In the late 1800s early 1900s Adrian was known as the "fence capital of the world," when Wallace Page invented the first successful wire fence. Throughout this time period Adrian was the only fencing manufacturer and its fences went as far as New York, Berlin, Asia, Africa, and many other places.
