New Lecture: Cadillac and the Founding of Detroit
Mill Race Village (Northville Historical
Wednesday, July 24, 2019
In the late 1600s the fur trade was the most lucrative business in Canada and controlled by France. A Frenchman, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, founded Detroit to maintain French control of the fur trade and for his own financial benefit. Local Historian Joseph Oldenburg will be making a presentation on the founding of Detroit City on its 318th anniversary. Join us on Wednesday, July 24th at 7:00 pm in the New School Church at Mill Race Village.
The lecture will be at the New School Church at Mill Race Historical Village, 215 Griswold St, Northville at 7:00pm. The lecture is free, although donations are accepted at the door to help defray costs. Register at: http://buytickets.at/northvillehistoricalsociety1/277869 si’l vous plait!
