Detroit was a pre-War city.
Detroit is mentioned in Guns and Bullets #4: Street Guns of Detroit, a magazine found in the Commonwealth and Appalachia. The issue features handmade pipe weaponry and suggests the crude devices were known to be used in criminal acts on the city's streets before the Great War.
In Appalachia, a man named Johnny Weston mentions to the player character that he may or may not be from Detroit and refuses to tell them his origins. Solomon Hardy also hailed from the city, with a family going back generations.

- Vault Dweller: "Where are you from originally?"
Johnny Weston: "I don't really talk about it. I'm from all over. I used to see a lot of military bases as a kid, until I struck out on my own. When the bombs dropped, I was living in New York. Or maybe, Boston. Or coulda been Detroit, or LA. Maybe even England. Sorry you don't get to know. No one does. I've got my reasons for keeping it that way, and I'm safer for it."
