Founded in 1701 by Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, the City of Detroit subsisted on a variety of industries: fur trading, stove building and the automobile. Detroit’s meteoric rise during the 20th century established the city as an influential leader in commerce, culture and religion. Henry Ford, Albert Khan, Mary Chase Stratton and Henry Ford II, all left their mark on a city with a rich heritage.

Join author and Detroit historian, Paul Vachon, as he tells some of the lesser-known stories within Detroit’s impressive history.
